The Vinita Christmas Parade of Lights has entertained thousands of children and adults year after year as it winds through the historic streets of downtown Vinita. In its early days, when Vinita was a new town, the Christmas parade quickly became an annual tradition that has continued to be a favorite event for generations. With “Sounds of Christmas” themed entries, including brightly decorated floats, marching bands, equestrian units, and a cast of magical Christmas characters, Vinita's favorite parade is an event not to be missed.
The VACC recognizes and appreciates its Legacy Members for their commitment to the organization and Vinita’s business community: Arvest Bank, Bank of Grand Lake, Cherokee Nation Businesses, City of Vinita, First National Bank, The Junction Internet, Oklahoma State Bank, and U.S. Cellular Premier Locations.
