parade route is one mile in length with no turns with the reviewing
stand located to your right in the downtown area. This is a wide,
well-lit area. We do permit a SHORT pause for a routine in at the
reviewing stand. However, due to the size of the parade, stops for
routines along the parade not will be permitted. Prizes and trophies
will be awarded immediately upon the judges’ decisions from
the reviewing stand. In the event of inclement weather, the parade
will be postponed until Tuesday December 3rd at 7pm. Schools will
be notified by 2:00 p.m. if we must postpone the event.
The Pocomoke City Christmas Parade is proud to attract bands from
throughout the tri-state area. We listen to the suggestions of our
band directors that help us make this event better each year. We
hope you accept our invitation to participate. Should you have any
