Things to do in Stamford

There are many things to do in Stamford to get you in the spirit of the season! The true kick off to the holidays starts with an annual perfect pair of parading giants and daring descents!

Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular
Starring all of your favorite giant balloon characters, this annual gathering is one of the largest of its kind in the country. Groove to the music of the prancing award-winning marching bands, join in and break out your best moves with the festive dance troupes, and of course, gaze in amazement as the larger-than-life helium balloons pass overhead. This year on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at 12:00PM, plan on being among the over 200,000 attendees to take in the sights and sounds of our city’s holiday kick off.

Heights and Lights
The perfect way to herald in the annual lighting of Stamford’s Holiday Tree is this one-of-a-kind event taking place on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at the Landmark Square building in Latham Park. Instead of balloons overhead, your favorite holiday characters from Santa Claus to Rudolph make their way down the 22-story height of the city’s tallest building, descending in delight before leading all who have gathered to the aforementioned evergreen.
