The Torch Parade is the first official parade of the Aruba Carnival Season.

Originally organized by the Tivoli Club, Aruba’s oldest social club, the Torch Parade is now the official opening parade on the Carnival organizer's (SMAC) schedule. The tradition continues with bright lights leading the way down the streets of Oranjestad.

The parade begins at 8 p.m. and sets the pace for the festivities to come in the following weeks.
