Last Chance to Register
for Groton Holiday Lights Parade

 GROTON - The deadline to register for the Eighteenth Annual Groton Holiday Lights Parade is Friday, November 17. The Groton Business Association (GBA) of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce has scheduled the parade for Saturday, December 2 at 5 p.m. The line of march is from Poquonnock Road at South Road, along Long Hill Road in downtown Groton to the Groton Shopping Plaza.

A special call goes out to bands, fife and drum corps and choral groups who make that special holiday music that everyone knows and loves.

The GBA urges all businesses along the parade route to decorate their windows and store fronts in the spirit of the season.

The GBA welcomes floats from businesses, clubs, organizations and marchers from all groups in the community. While it is free to participate, all participants must complete an on-line application that can be found at www.grotonbiz.com. For those without access to the web, please call 860-536-5680 for assistance.

Immediately after the parade, Santa Claus will have the honor of lighting the holiday tree on the green at the rear of the Groton Shopping Plaza. Parents, you are invited to take your child’s photograph with Santa. Entertainment will be provided. This post-parade celebration is sponsored by the Groton Rotary Club.

The GBA invites and encourages representatives from local small businesses to volunteer as elves. You can not only be part of the fun, but also advertise your business along the parade route.  Call the Chamber at 860-572-9578 for more information.
