3rd Annual F&M Trust Downtown Carlisle Christmas Parade
This year's theme for downtown Carlisle's third annual Christmas Parade is "Light Up The Night." All participants are encouraged to design their unit with holiday or accent lights. Prize money and prizes will be awarded at end of the parade.
The parade will be held on Hanover Street between North and Willow Streets and will kick-off Carlisle Wonderland Weekend's full schedule of holiday events. The F&M Trust Carlisle Christmas Parade will host over 50 parade units of floats, youth groups, marchers, dancers, and marching bands, and corporate units. Emceeing the night is RED 102.3 hosts, Rick on Red, Cody Lee, and Phil the Thrill.
New this year is the parade marshalling area. The parade will line up and start south of the Carlisle Fire & Rescue at 177 Carlisle Springs Road and parade down to the square. Marchers will enter into the square and wait for Santa who will end the parade and light the official Christmas tree and new Veteran's Courtyard lights.
