It's November, and let's be honest, we are already planning out how we're going to celebrate the holidays. From over-the-top Christmas festivals to dazzling light displays, we've got a list full of wildly festive activities. The one we're most excited about is the light parade in Phoenix.

The APS Electric Light Parade is a wildly festive show with adorable floats and entertainment. It's happening next month on December 7, from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. The parade is free to watch and it's the perfect spot to rep your favorite ugly Christmas sweater. 

Bring a thermos filled with your favorite seasonal drink and snuggle up with a blanket to enjoy the parade. This year's theme is "Walking in a Desert Wonderland" and honestly, it couldn't be more fitting.

No matter where you end up finding a seat, you'll be able to enjoy the parade every step of the way. It will start on Central Ave. and Montebello Ave. and end on 7th Street and E. Indian School Road in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Before the parade, you can find a spot along the sidewalk and set up some folding chairs. It gets chilly at night, so plan on bringing a warm blanket along with you. 

We're really looking forward to all of the floats this year. Last year, there was a Nightmare Before Christmas float and honestly, it made us wish it was Halloween again. 

If you want to see the festive holiday floats up close, you can go to the pre-parade party on December 6, from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. It's the perfect way to enjoy the floats without the big crowds. There will also be some holiday-themed fun too. 

You'll be able to play games, see Santa Claus, and make some arts and crafts. The pre-parade is free to attend and it'll be happening in the parking lot of North Phoenix Baptist Church. 

All we know is that Christmas is almost here and that means we can finally start binge-watching those cheesy holiday movies we love.
