The Sun Prairie Business Improvement District is pleased to announce that the holidays are about to arrive in Downtown Sun Prairie!


The 102 Annual Fire Truck Parade and Tree Lighting event

Friday, November 24 from 5:00-7:00p.m.

Historical Museum and Library, 115 E. Main Street, Sun Prairie


Join us in front of the Historical Museum and Library for this colorful and energetic community tradition, which includes a special guest appearance from Santa Claus! This event is a partnership between the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department, the Historical Museum and Library, and the Downtown Sun Prairie Business Improvement District.

Enjoy entertainment and treats beginning at 5:00p.m. as we gather in front of the Historical Museum and Library for holiday musical performances from the Sun Prairie Community Band and the Sun Prairie Chorus, along with an energetic dance performance on Main Street courtesy of Fusion Dance. Cookies with cider will be served outside as we wait for the fire trucks to arrive.

Area fire departments bring their trucks to town decorated for the holiday season! The fire trucks will depart from Kroncke Drive at 5:45p.m. The trucks will travel east on Main Street and proceed until they are parked side-by-side in two lanes at the intersection of Main Street and Church Street / Market Street.  

Once all of the firetrucks are parked, watch as special guest Santa Claus uses holiday magic to light the Downtown holiday tree located in front of the Historical Museum and Library! After the tree is lit, get an up-close look at the fire trucks as they are parked on Main Street for your viewing pleasure.

The Firetruck Parade and Tree Lighting event is sponsored in part by TDS.
