night, November 30th, 2015, We will celebrate our 43rd year as
Pocomoke City will be transformed into a “Winter Wonderland”
as Pocomoke City plays host to one of Delmarva’s largest
nighttime Christmas parades.
Always held on the first Monday night after Thanksgiving,
the Pocomoke parade has become an Eastern Shore tradition and will
attract over 100 units from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia along
with thousands of spectators.
Each year the parade features marching bands representing high and
middle schools from seven counties in three states. Also featured
will be beautifully decorated and lighted floats entered by schools,
civic organizations, churches, and commercial enterprises.
Clowns, marching units, fire departments, equestrian units, and
of course Santa Claus will round out the two-hour event, slated
to kick-off at 7:00 p.m. sharp. The route will take the parade north
on Market Street beginning at 14th Street and ending at the Pocomoke
Professional judges, including members of the National Judges Association
(NJA), will score entries in 10 different categories. Cash prizes
and trophies will be awarded immediately following the event to
the top entries in each category.
A special thanks to the community of Pocomoke City and surrounding
areas for the recent support given to us to continue this great
tradition that has been a part of the town for over 40 years.
