25 Things to Do in Rogers

#12: Parades, Lights & Holiday Fun

Spread holiday cheer by attending these holiday events in Rogers!


Garland, lights, presents, and the hope for snow, the holiday season is special here in Rogers. Join us to celebrate the holiday season with these fun events in Rogers!

Downtown Rogers

Start the holiday season in Rogers with the Rogers Christmas Parade. Typically held on the first Friday evening in December, you will want to get to downtown early to eat at one of the many delicious restaurants prior to the parade. Stop in at Alexander Baking Co. for a cup of hot chocolate or a cute holiday themed cookie. The parade will kick-off with the lighting of the tree in the heart of downtown. More than 70 floats will dazzle you as the parade makes its way through the brick-lined streets of downtown. Keep an eye out for the Grinch, superheroes, and of course Santa!

Watch for cars to be decorated with Christmas lights

Sips on the Bricks is back in Downtown Rogers! Businesses in downtown will be crafting some creative holiday cocktails and mocktails for you to taste test and judge! Sip some pretty fantastic concoctions created for your enjoyment. Must be 21 to participate.

Uptown Rogers

The Pinnacle Hills Promenade mall is full of holiday spirit. Stroll through the mall as you take in the holiday decor and lights illuminating the streets. Santa visits the mall every December for many opportunities to turn in your Christmas list, grab a picture, and just to say hi! Grab the whole family for a holiday pajama night with Santa and take an unforgettable photo with Santa. Create a ‘fur-rever’ memory with your 4-legged family members when you take your dog or cat to get their photo with Santa! Imagine the fun reactions you will get sharing this adorable photo with your family and friends. Make reservations to secure a spot.
