The Blade Holiday Parade will step off at 10 a.m. Saturday from the corner of North Summit Street and Jefferson Avenue, beginning a day of downtown holiday events. 

Grand marshal and Walleye captain Alden Hirschfeld will join marchers, balloons, floats, bands, and Santa Claus. 

The Blade Holiday Parade, sponsored by Taylor Automotive Group and the Distinguished Clown Corps, is a 30-year tradition that last year drew an estimated 20,000 spectators. For more information, visit bladeparade.toledoblade.com.

Deck the Downtown will continue the festive cheer throughout the day. Santa will sit for free photos at Imagination Station between noon and 5 p.m., followed by two downtown tree lightings at Promenade Park at 5:30 p.m. and at Hensville at 6 p.m.
