Experience the joy of the holidays as Truckee-Donner Recreation Park District hosts a no frills holiday drive-through event from the the safe distance of your vehicle. Join TDRPD for a ‘stationary parade’ through the Community Recreation Center parking lot with the hope of bringing a little extra holiday spirit to our community during these challenging times.

Exhibits and displays will include a chance to wave to Santa Claus, view Christmas lights and enjoy some amazing holiday exhibits built by the awesome people and organizations that are participating.
“We at TDRPD have seen people really struggling so much this year, and wanted to try to provide a little holiday good cheer. Families can drive around the perimeter of the Community Recreation Center, and see local agencies and community members’ lights and festive exhibits in a safe, contactless environment,” said TDRPD Preschool Director Kristin Henry
You can also donate cash or grocery store gift cards at the end of the parade to benefit Sierra Community House programs. Local families will receive the donations through their Hunger Relief program.
