It is traditionally held on the first Saturday in December each year. The parade begins at 6:00 PM.

The line-up will begin at 4:30 PM at the UMPI campus. The parade will continue down Main Street, ending at the far entrance of the North Street Plaza.

The Chamber will uphold tradition and have the only Santa Claus on their float.

Please note; that any extra Santa’s will disqualify your entry.

Absolutely no candy throwing.

We are looking for participants to add music to their floats for more festive fun.

We also ask that participants turn off their headlights during the parade, please.
