Every year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, downtown Topeka kicks off the holiday season with a fun-filled day of Small Business Saturday shopping, dining, and music. The festivities continue into the evening with the Rescue Run, Community Tree Lighting Ceremony at Evergy, and more!
The MKA Parade’s “lighted” holiday-themed entries include walking groups, dance teams, marching bands, bicycles, Shriners, military vehicles, public service vehicles, floats, car clubs . . . and the “official” Santa appearance closing the parade.
