Though the weather the past week hasn’t been an indication, the holiday season is right around the corner, and downtown is ready to kick it off with the annual Kalamazoo Holiday Parade.
The parade steps off at 11 a.m. Saturday. Hundreds of participants will march down Lovell Street to Park Street to Michigan Avenue and back to Lovell.
Parade officials expect 40,000 spectators to view the balloons, bands and floats for free.
