Get ready for Christmas Parade

Santa Claus will join the holiday fun as the Christmas Parade hits the streets of Hamilton tomorrow.

It will mark the annual spectacle’s tenth year as the MarketPlace Christmas Parade.

Participants include the Lions Clubs of Bermuda, Lotus Ariel Team, Bermuda Long Riders Motorcycle Club, the Association of Filipinos in Bermuda, Blu Kids, the Bermuda Police Service Motorcycle Division, the Bermuda Fire Service and the Royal Bermuda Regiment.

Also participating are the St George’s Dancerettes, DanceSations, In Motion School of Dance, Vasco Folklore Dance Group, Rated E, Place’s New Generation Gombeys, and much more.

Seth Stutzman, the MarketPlace president, said 2019 would be a landmark for the colourful fixture, which would be “an even more memorable occasion for spectators”.

He said: “In addition to our exciting line-up of themed floats, dance groups, kids’ favourite cartoon characters and Santa, a special laser show and giant balloons will make their debuts in the parade to mark the milestone year.”

The parade will set out at 5pm from the junction of Church Street and Par-la-Ville Road, and head east along Front Street. It will continue north on Court Street, west on Church Street, and finish at the junction of Church Street and Wesley Street. Roads will begin to close from 3pm.
