Ch­ester­town hol­i­day pa­rade win­ners

The Star Democrat - - LOCAL -

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.

PHO­TOS BY TR­ISH MCGEE

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.
