Downtown Andover, MA
Merry Christmas! Come join the rest of Andover at the biggest Santa Parade this side of the Shawsheen River. The streets will be filled with bands playing great music, dance troops dancing, floats full of holiday cheer, all sorts of great entertainment, and of course, plenty of fire trucks!
This year's parade theme will be A Nightmare Before Christmas. We hope to see the streets filled with floats fit to make Jack Skellington proud. Bring the whole family for a great evening of fun at the parade, leading right into the tree lighting ceremony.
We appreciate all the feedback regarding the later start time this year. The main reason for the 4 PM start was to coincide our parade with the towns Tree Lighting ceremony. We are taking everyone safety as one of our top priorities. The parade route is going back to our traditional route ending on Punchard Ave. and extra lighting is being utilized if needed. We encourage reflective clothing and birght/lighted floats if at all possible!
