Look for us at the 9News Parade of Lights!

Come watch for Denver Water’s float and its Running Toilet wowing the crowd along the 2-mile route.

Denver Water employees — and a float — will once again be wrapped in lights and spreading holiday cheer during the 9News Parade of Lights through downtown during the first weekend in December.

The utility’s “Mountain Magic” float, which showcases the journey of water from the “gift” of mountain snowpack to customers' taps, will be guided by 30 dedicated Denver Water employees, family and friends.

Denver Water’s Running Toilet, a crowd favorite, also will be on hand entertaining kids and their parents along the route.

The 48th annual 9NEWS Parade of Lights will be held Saturday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. 9NEWS will be broadcasting the parade live on 9NEWS, 9NEWS.com, the 9NEWS app and the 9NEWS YouTube channel.

This year’s parade will once again feature more than 40 groups, including brightly lit floats, giant balloons, marching bands, decorated dogs and more.

Check out the video above and these pictures below to see the great times we’ve had participating in previous years’ parades.
