Santa Claus officially comes to town during the 69th annual Salisbury Christmas Parade, hosted by the Salisbury Jaycees.
The parade begins 2 p.m. Sunday, December 6 (rain date: Sunday, December 13), at the corner of Civic Avenue and Mt. Hermon Road. The route travels down Mt. Hermon Road to East Main Street, ending near Ward Street. The judges’ stand is located in front of the fountain at City Park.
This year’s theme is “A Cartoon Christmas.” Participants are expected to include approximately 10 middle and high school marching bands, as well as local fire companies, community organizations and elected officials.
Floats are scheduled to include a “Minions”-themed entry from Eastern Correctional Institution. Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis serves as grand marshal.
Big Classic Rock 98.5 and 107.7 FM’s Brian K. Hall serves as the parade announcer. The parade will be broadcast on PAC 14 in the days leading up to Christmas. Event co-chairs are Kristy Johnson and Jamie Hopper.
