Second Annual Not-So-Silent Night Parade – New Years Eve

From Dan Mullins, Chair of the Highland Park Action Committee

Hey Neighbor,

If you want to have some fun this New Years Eve, Highland Park is the place to be!
Bang on a drum or shake your tambourine as you travel along with the second annual “Not So Silent Night Parade”.
March along with us on a 20-30 minute trip through Highland Park, making just enough noise to remind our neighbors that it’s New Years Eve.

After the parade, watch as “Cirque de Flambe” performers entertain the crowd in the Highland Park Improvement Club parking lot with the exciting “Sage Comet” (thanks to West Seattle Blog!)

We will be passing out hot cider and cookies and have a little fire pit going to keep you warm.

Parade goers will meet at the HP Improvement Club, 1116 SW Holden St. at 6:45 Friday night for a 7:00 sharp departure.
Everybody Welcome!
Return to HPIC at 7:30 for the performance in the parking lot.
Bring a noise maker (tambourine, bells, pots and spoons, etc).
Dress warm ’cause we are going, rain or moon-shine, and you may want to bring a flashlight and an umbrella! (or even better a flashlight taped inside an umbrella, so it glows!)
Bring the kids in their strollers and your friendly dogs on their leashes.

We need a few volunteers to help direct traffic and keep the parade marchers safe.
PLEASE VOLUNTEER to be a crossing guard by contacting Dan Mullins at: chair09 at
