The 400 Block
The 400 Block
One of the long standing traditions in Wausau, join us for Wausau's Holiday Parade! Watch the floats dazzled in twinkling lights and experience the magic of the night. The route goes from Marathon Park to The 400 Block. Floats are announced by the emcees at the 400 Block. After, join us for the Tree Lighting on the 400 Block and then for a warming party in the Great Hall with a visit from Santa, music by the Wausau Symphonic Orchestra, cookies (while they last) and hot chocolate!
Route: Marathon Park to the 400 Block via Stewart, 1st & Jefferson
