CHRISTMAS PARADE & MARKET
DECEMBER 10th, 2022
(ALWAYS THE SECOND SATURDAY IN DECEMBER)
LET'S CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS TOGETHER!
AWESOME PARADE FLOATS, MUSIC, FOOD TRUCKS, HOMEMADE SWEETS, FACE PAINTING, 60 VENDORS, PETTING ZOO, STORY TIME, BALLOON ART, PHOTOS WITH SANTA, AND MUCH MORE!
The parade starts at either Moon School or Waterford High School (TBD) at 5:30pm, and ends at Waterford Jr High after traveling through the streets of Waterford and the Christmas Market. There will be an announcing station at the Christmas Market. If you wish to watch the parade in your vehicle, Pecan St and Bentley St between the Museum and "F" Street provide the best parking. The Christmas Parade will pause at Waterford Museum so Santa can turn on the lights for the City Christmas Tree while riding atop his "sleigh" - the Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Truck!
The Parade entry judging booth is located at the announcing station at the Christmas Market (on the right side of the float entries). Winners will be chosen for the following five categories: Best In Show, Most Original, Brightest Lights, Best Youth Entry, Best Music.
Parade Entry Forms are due to be returned to the City of Waterford by November 30th.
Come out early on Saturday to enjoy great shopping, food trucks, and activities, before watching the parade in Downtown Waterford. There will be over 60 vendors and food options to enjoy, and the Market will also host an announcing station for the parade, as well as the judges booth. Don't miss out on the opportunity to get that awesome family photo with Santa and Mrs Claus!
