Con­struc­tion won’t af­fect pa­rade

Sunday Star - - LOCAL -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — The 2018 Cen­tre­ville Christ­mas Pa­rade is sched­uled for 6:30 p.m. Fri­day, Dec. 7.

This year’s theme will be “The Great­est Gift of All.” Still one of the area’s largest hol­i­day pa­rades, a max­i­mum of 90 en­tries will be per­mit­ted again this year.

Al­though the town of Cen­tre­ville will be up­grad­ing its in­fra­struc­ture on Com­merce Street at the time of the pa­rade, town of­fi­cials said the con­trac­tor will en­sure Com­merce Street is in a pass­able state. The pa­rade will not be af­fected and will take place as sched­uled.

The pa­rade com­mit­tee an­nounced their in­tent this year to make this pa­rade float ori­ented, and tro­phies will be awarded to floats only. Al­though walk­ing groups are per­mit­ted to par­tic­i­pate, to help with the su­per­vi­sion and safety of the pa­rade, the com­mit­tee has en­cour­aged no walk­ing groups with the ex­cep­tion of march­ing bands. The dead­line to reg­is­ter a float or group has al­ready passed.

As in years past, the pa­rade route is sched­uled to leave Queen Anne’s County High School at 6:30 p.m., pro­ceed down Ruths­burg Road/Rail­road Av­enue and take a right onto Banjo Lane and turn left onto Turpins Lane, con­tinue on Turpins Lane and turn left onto Com­merce Street; con­tinue on Com­merce Street and turn left on Kid­well Av­enue; con­tinue on Kid­well Av­enue; and turn right on Ruths­burg Road. The pa­rade will con­tinue on Ruths­burg Road, and re­turn and dis­band at the Queen Anne’s County High School.
