Annual Holiday Parade

Annual Holiday Parade, PEACE ON EARTH - December 9, 2017 (4:00 p.m.)

Elizabethtown Borough will hand off the Annual Holiday Parade to the Greater Elizabethtown Area recreation & Community Services (GEARS) with the 2017 event.  Our strong partnership with GEARS promotes healthy living and meaningful learning opportunities for both the young and the young at heart.  Through GEARS, vital services and programs are executed by knowledgeable and skilled staff.  Elizabethtown Borough will provide administrative and logistical support to assist GEARS in this transition year.  Based on their wonderful track record of providing programming and events for our community, we look forward to GEARS making this an even greater event for the Elizabethtown region.  We hope the community's support for the Annual Holiday Parade continues under the organization and direction of GEARS.

The parade begins at the corner of South Market/West Bainbridge Streets and travels north on Market Street to the intersection of North Market Street and Mechanics Alley.  The parade disburses at Mechanics Alley where Santa exits and makes his way back to his castle at the corner of Market and High Street where he remains as he takes time with our children to learn about their wishes and dreams for Christmas Eve.

The parade is judged each year on the best use of theme, originality, charm, technical performance, and audio/visual appeal.  The public is invited to participate by submitting an application and the required hold-harmless agreement. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.  Please feel free to call the Borough for questions/more information.
