Families in the town of Queen Creek will celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with the Queen Creek Holiday Parade and Festival. The event is brought to you by the Kiwanis Club of Queen Creek, Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Queen Creek. The festival benefits the Queen Creek Branch Boys & Girls Club. The proceeds from the event go to programs for the children in the community.
The theme for this year's celebration is "A CartoonChristmas."
