Howard-Suamico Christmas Parade

Once again its time to dust off the floats, tune up the instruments and get the costumes out of storage for the 42nd Annual Howard  Suamico Christmas Parade. This years parade will be held on Saturday, December 4th, 2010 at 1:00 pm. The starting point will be BayView Middle School with staging taking place along Woodale and Rockwell Roads. The theme of the parade is  Christmas in Toyland. Parade organizers are expecting a record number of units this year!

The route of the parade will follow Cardinal Lane to the south to Glendale, then east on Glendale to Harwood, and north on Harwood to Woodale. Finally, the parade will return to BayView via the Cardinal Lane driveway to the north of the building.

This parade is one of, if not, the oldest Christmas parade in Wisconsin and was granted the title of Wisconsins Official Christmas Parade by the governor back in the 1970s. It will feature bands, marching units and groups, costume characters and, yes, Santa! Candy will be distributed to children along the curb by the costumed characters and others but nothing can be thrown from any unit. Following the parade, Santa will visit with children in the BayView auditorium for approximately one hour. Come join the fun as we celebrate the holidays with the 42nd Annual Howard  Suamico Christmas Parade.
