WINTHROP — The annual Winthrop Holiday Parade will take place at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, sponsored by the Winthrop Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.
Lineup starts at 2:30 p.m. at the top of Main Street near Cumberland Farms. Snow date is Sunday, Dec. 2.
The parade is an opportunity to promote a business or organization and showcase holiday creativity. Participation can be as simple as having a couple of people in costumes walking with a banner, or a full-scale float loaded with decorations.
Though the parade is in Winthrop, businesses and groups in the chamber’s region, including Wayne, Readfield, Manchester, Monmouth, Fayette and Mount Vernon are encouraged to take part.
Riding clubs and other groups with animals are also invited to participate. As always, live music is encouraged.
A completed entry form must be sent to the chamber to participate. Forms are available on the chamber website. Mail or scan and email forms to Winthrop Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 51, Winthrop, ME 04364 or [email protected]
