One of the biggest holiday celebrations in Fort Wayne, Christmas on Broadway returns for its 18th year on Friday, Nov. 18. 

The tradition is set to fill the streets of Broadway, surrounding Broadway Plaza, where one of Humane Fort Wayne’s adoptable pets will illuminate 40,000 lights on a 35-foot-tall Colorado blue spruce, ushering in the holiday season. 

The Concordia Lutheran High School Marching Band will lead the parade that begins at Broadway and Creighton Street about 5:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to line both sides of Broadway before making their way to the plaza. There, event organizers say Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be handing out Santa hats and stockings to all of the children in attendance. 

The night concludes with fireworks display that is sure to make Rudolph proud.
