NH Christmas paradeThe popular Salem Holiday Parade, which traditionally features high school marching bands, colorful floats, antique cars, costumed Christmas characters – and of course, Santa Claus – will take place on Sunday, Nov. 28.

The excitement begins at 1:00 p.m. when the parade begins near the intersection of North Policy Street and Route 97. The parade will travel along Main Street (Route 97) and end at Salem High School on Geremonty Drive.

Organizers expect around 8,000 spectators.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Past, Present, and Future,” and well-known meteorologist Al Kaprielian (“Good evening!”) will serve as grand marshal.

Last year, nearly 60 community groups participated in the parade.

Groups involved in this year’s parade include the Salem High School Blue Devil Marching Band, which will perform “Jingle Bells” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” students of Carlene Nazarian Dance Center who will dance to a modern, upbeat version of “Let It Snow,” and the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce, which will have a gingerbread house float featuring its theme, “home, sweet home – support your local business.”
