Holiday Parade to be held December 5th

On Friday, December 5th, in conjunction with December's First Friday's festivities, the Phoenixville Kiwanis will once again be hosting the annual Holiday Parade.

From today's Phoenix:

Seven area fire companies will again be appearing in the parade, along with their lavishly decorated trucks, as well as holiday favorites like Santa Claus and more than 20 popular characters from beloved children's stories will be on hand to entertain kids and adults.

...

The parade will line up along Church Street near Borough Hall on Friday, Dec. 5. Because of traffic and construction concerns, the parade will travel the wrong way down Church Street, turn right on Main Street and then left on Bridge Street. The parade will be making the right turn onto Main Street promptly at 7 p.m., Marshall said.

Two trucks from each company will be allowed in the parade, and Mitchell said that, as in previous years, there will be a cash prize and other honors for the winning fire company. Last year's winner, the Mont Clair Fire Company, will have the honor of riding last in the parade and transporting Santa Claus through downtown Phoenixville.

Also slated to appear in the parade are a Brazilian drum band and the Phoenixville Area High School marching band.

Once the parade has made its way to Taylor Alley, and the winner of the parade has been named, all parade participants will be making their way back down Bridge Street to Phoenixville's Renaissance Park, where Santa and parade Grand Marshall state representative Carol Rubley will be lighting the borough Christmas tree. Santa will also be available at that time to speak to children and hear their Christmas wishes, Mitchell said.
