Holiday Grinch Parade

530 pm- 8 pm Friday, December 2nd (see parade map for route)

This tradition started in 2016 when a local Snoqualmie Valley real estate company, Frost Home Team, wanted to put on a private Grinch movie experience for their clients and the community. Doing something around the holidays seemed like the perfect fit. 

Since that first year, the family-friendly Grinch event has evolved and grown in popularity. In 2020 they were hoping to celebrate their 5th year memorably, but Covid had other plans and forced them to get creative and pivot to an event respecting the current times.

They decided to bring Whoville and the Grinch to the community through a parade! It is a surefire way of spreading some holiday cheer. As the floats roll by, they will be playing music, making it snow, handing out goody bags, and hopefully bringing smiles to the faces of kids and adults alike… And there will be a special Santa appearance!! The parade was such a hit that they decided to continue to carry on this annual tradition for the 3rd year.

There will be two photo opportunities in Forster Woods and Si View neighborhoods, along with free hot cocoa and apple cider served by the Vintage Baristas. For details about the event, please visit the Frost Home Team Facebook page—
