Chestertown holiday parade winners
CHESTERTOWN — Santa came to town last month. Twice.
He made his traditional arrival by fire truck Friday night, Nov. 23, as children filled the street in the area of Fountain Park to get their first look at Jolly Old St. Nick.
And then on Saturday morning, Nov. 24, he was the main attraction of the holiday parade downtown.
The weather was winterappropriate, cold and overcast, but Santa and all the parade entries received a warm welcome.
Parade winners are listed here.
Kent County High School marching band, first; and Kent County Community Marching Band, second.
University of Maryland Extension, 4-H Youth Development, first; E.L.B. Incorporated, second; and Main Street Chestertown, Dickens of a Christmas, third.
FLOAT: CLASSIC CAR:
Jeff Maguire’s 1956 Ford Thunderbird, first; Meghan Efland’s 1968 Mercedes 200D, second; and Jay White’s fourdoor 1971 Pontiac Catalina, third.
Chestertown Christian Academy cheerleaders, first; Cub Scout Pack 253, second; and Garfield Center for the Arts, third.
It looks a little like Christmas, briefly, as a confetti-launcher sprays the crowd Saturday morning, Nov. 24, during the Chestertown holiday parade.
Rudolph, the Grinch, elves and other holiday characters lead off Saturday’s parade in downtown Chestertown.
A reminder of Christmas past is this 1963 Mercury Monterey S-55 Breeze with Brett Nicholson at the wheel.
