Announcing the winners of the 2024 Torchlight Parade

Thank you to everyone who participated in our hometown parade. We had over 65 entries from community groups, local businesses, nonprofits, car clubs and more!

The Benicia Torchlight Parade would not be successful without the efforts of our community partners, City of Benicia, our volunteer parade marshalls, and the Ham Radio Club to name a few. Big thanks to our Parade announcer David Horn who captured the magic of the evening. Congratulation again to our Grand Marshalls Penny and Bob Stell  We hope everyone enjoyed the festivities.
