The attendance at this event ranges in age from under 2 to over 80. The greatest bulk of attendees plan to spend three to six hours at the event which enjoys the largest crowds from two hours ahead of parade time, which is roughly 7:30pm- 9:00pm, till an hour or more after the parade concludes. Families tend to clear out earlier leaving the adult couples and singles to enjoy the remainder of the night downtown. Music ends on the main stage at Pioneer Park at 11pm.
