From specialty shops to fine dining, Historic Downtown Pocatello is a magnet for people looking for a unique experience. Clothing, antiques, housewares, sporting goods, art galleries and other charming shops make us a destination for shoppers. Places to eat, serving everything from subs to fine international dishes, stand side-by-side with bars, brew pubs, coffee shops and bakeries. For those who want to be pampered, there are day spas, beauty salons and candy treats to ease the hustle-and-bustle of 21st century life. Banks, architects, lawyers, accountants, and doctors round-out downtown's business community. All this amongst the beautiful historic buildings that speak of the past and create the perfect ambience for a unique experience.

Welcome the Christmas Season with the community traditions in our beautiful Downtown!
On Friday, November 27, from 6-8pm, plan to enjoy the Christmas Night Lights Parade. The presenting sponsor, ISU Credit Union, is returning this year to help make the parade possible. This year will be a little different with community members invited to stay in their vehicles and drive thru the parade route. Parade entries and floats will be parked along the parade route for all to enjoy.
We are excited to announce that the historic Buster Brown Neon Sign will be turned on for its official "relighting" at 6pm sharp just as the parade route opens. This newest restored neon sign will "wink" at all of our guests as they travel through the Center Street Underpass from the East side to the West side of Historic Downtown Pocatello.
And of course, Santa will be at the top of Fire Truck #1 at the end of the parade. Santa's elves will have bags of candy and treats for all of the kids.
Registration this year for commercial entries is $45.00 plus processing costs. Registration for Non-Profit and Veterans Organizations is complimentary. We just ask that you please register so we can plan for your participation. Please click here for more information and for the link to register.
Changes this year are being implemented for the health and safety of our community. Thank you for your support and understanding as we all work together to provide the best Christmas Season possible for our entire community! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 208-232-7545.
