ROCHESTER — The Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce has announced plans for its annual holiday parade with the theme this year of “A Polar Express Christmas." The event is scheduled Sunday, Dec. 3, beginning at 3 p.m., featuring floats, high school marching bands, marching units, mobile units and equestrian units.
Floats lined up in the assembly area by 1 p.m. will be judged on theme, creativity, craftsmanship, and overall appearance with plaques awarded for Best of Parade, second place, and third place, as well as a People’s Choice award.
The parade route will begin on Wakefield Street by the triangle at the entrance to the Spaulding High School. It will proceed south on Wakefield Street, turn right onto Union Street, turn left onto North Main Street to South Main Street, and disband in front of the Rochester Common.
Entries will be accepted through Nov. 30. The parade is underwritten by Service Credit Union.
