Following up on last year’s successful, fun, and whimsical Holiday Parade, the East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce today announced its second consecutive Holiday Parade scheduled for Saturday, December 7. For many years, the Town of East Greenwich and the East Greenwich Chamber’s Main Street Merchants Committee have held a Christmas Tree Lighting at East Greenwich Town Hall. This year, once again, the traditional tree lighting will follow a Holiday Parade down Main Street.
“We are again looking forward to involving more people, fun, and holiday festivities all along Main Street,” said Steve Lombardi of the East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce. The parade will be led by the Extraordinary Rendition Band and trailed by Santa Claus in an old-fashioned fire truck. Before the TREE LIGHTING, the Providence Ballet Theatre will showcase a short performance of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Anyone interested in participating in the parade should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The holiday parade will have a festive Dr. Seuss-like feel theme. Throw your crazy hats and sweaters on, dress in holiday outfits, light yourselves up with glow sticks or strung lights, or even bring your dogs in costume! All organizations and independents are welcome to join the fun!!
All participants will congregate at Eldredge Field at 4:30 pm. At 5 pm, the parade will head down Friendship Street and turn left onto Main Street. We anticipate arriving at Town Hall by 5:30 pm. There, we will be joined by the St. Luke’s Children’s Choir. After Christmas carols, Santa will participate in the Annual Tree Lighting followed by pictures inside EG Town Hall.
The Holiday Parade is a fun way to kick-off the holidays and everybody is welcome to participate.
