Maynard, MA - Although December might seem a long way off, plans for the 57th Annual Maynard Holiday Parade are already forming. This year it falls on Sunday December 3rd (the date is always the 1st Sunday in December and it always starts at 2:00 PM). The food collection trucks roll out right at 2 o'clock and the parade follows shortly after.
However, funds must be raised in advance to make the parade successful and free to all who wish to venture downtown to join in the fun.
Maynard resident and community event producer, Jen Picorelli, has sent along a link to a page on Facebook, describing the event details. For those of you without a Facebook account, there is also a web site devoted to the Parade:
Here is what she posted on Facebook:
"Being the director of the Maynard Holiday Parade has become one of my achievements that I am most proud of in town. I am so happy to report to you all that I have partnered with Sanctuary ( https://www.sanctuarymaynard.com ) to not only raise funds for the 57th Annual Maynard Holiday Parade, but also begin a tradition that we have never had in town; a costumed ball lovingly named The Fall Ball. In addition, being able to host this event with one of my most favorite friends, William Doyle, makes the event all the more special to me.
Come and hear the amazing live band Soul Function Boston, dance the night away, mingle with friends, enjoy appetizers and desserts of local Maynard eateries and raise funds for one of the most loved traditions in our fabulous town, the 57th Maynard Holiday Parade. Costumes are encouraged, but not necessary to attend."
