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 River.
Professional judges, including members of the National Judges
Association (NJA), will score entries in many 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 four decades.
