Join the F&M Trust Christmas Parade!

The Downtown Carlisle Association has opened Christmas Parade registration by releasing new 2018 Parade Participant Forms.  Community groups, schools, families, businesses or other organizations are invited to participate in the 3rd Annual F&M Trust Downtown Carlisle Christmas Parade on Friday, November 30, starting at 7:00 p.m. rain or shine.  This year’s theme is “Light Up The Night” and all participants are encouraged to design their unit with holiday or accent lights.  Prize money and prizes will be awarded at end of the parade.

The parade will be held on Hanover Street between North and Willow Streets and will kick-off a weekend full of holiday events.  The F&M Trust Carlisle Christmas Parade will host over 50 parade units of floats, youth groups, marchers, dancers, and marching bands, and corporate units.  Emceeing the night is RED 102.3 hosts, Rick on Red, Cody Lee, and Phil the Thrill.

New this year is the parade marshalling area.  The parade will line up and start south of the Carlisle Fire & Rescue at 177 Carlisle Springs Road and parade down to the square.  Marchers will enter into the square and wait for Santa who will end the parade and light the official Christmas tree and new Veteran’s Courtyard lights.

Applications can be downloaded at www.LoveCarlisle.com.  For more information on participating as a unit, or sponsorship, contact the DCA at 717-245-2648.
