Today on DelmarvaLife:
The Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce invites you to the Chincoteague Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade to be held on December 2, 2017. Fire trucks, high-stepping equestrian units, decorated boats, shiny classic cars, stately marching groups, impressive motorcycles, and glittering floats will parade down Main Street. This year’s theme is “A Misty-cal Christmas” in honor of the 70th anniversary of Marguerite Henry’s award-winning children’s novel, Misty of Chincoteague.
There are activities galore for the young and old on tap for the weekend. The Chincoteague Police Department sponsors its annual Ride for Kids to provide toys for children in need, the American Legion hosts a Christmas Party from Noon to 2 p.m., the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance offers free Kids Art Classes from 1-2 p.m., and Historic Main Street Merchants sponsor “Homes for the Holidays” Home Tour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Enjoy dinner in one of our many restaurants, holiday sounds in Robert Reed Park by The Salt Marsh Ramblers at 6 p.m. and then watch the parade step off at 7 p.m. Parade route begins at the intersection of Main Street and Maddox Boulevard and ends at the Chincoteague Firehouse with treats sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Chincoteague and a visit with Santa. Awards are given for best floats, boats, fire companies, equestrian units, marching groups and miscellaneous entries.
