Main Street Delaware is gearing up for a set of enchanting events that promise to bring the community together in celebration. These events are not only a testament to the town’s vibrant community spirit but also offer unique opportunities for residents and visitors alike to immerse themselves in the festive atmosphere. Let’s explore two of the standout events slated for this December.
The Magic of the Annual Christmas Parade
- Date: Sunday, December 3
- Time: 3:00 PM
- Location: Begins at Mingo Park, travels down Sandusky Street to Wilmer Street
The streets of downtown Delaware will come alive with the Annual Christmas Parade, an event that encapsulates the joy and wonder of the holiday season. This much-anticipated parade, stepping off from Mingo Park at 3:00 PM, will meander its way down Sandusky Street all the way to Wilmer Street, creating a spectacle of lights, music, and holiday cheer.
A Special Delivery to Santa
An exciting feature of the parade is the opportunity for children to send their letters to Santa Claus. Santa’s helpers, collaborating with the local Post Office, will be part of the parade, ready to collect letters from eager young attendees. It’s a magical touch, ensuring that every child’s wishes reach Santa in time for Christmas. Parents are reminded to include a legible return address in their children’s letters for a special chance to receive a reply from Santa himself.
Community Support and Acknowledgments
The parade is made possible thanks to the generous support of community investors and sponsors. A special mention goes to Trimble Insurance, the parade’s primary sponsor, whose contribution is invaluable in bringing this festive event to life.
