Thanks everyone who participated in the parade and continued thanks to our donors who make it all possible.

The Cambridge ~ Dorchester County Christmas Parade is held annually on the first Saturday in December each year. Once hailed as the 'largest nighttime parade', the parade continues each year as a timeless tradition throughout the decades.

The parade is hosted and brought to the community by a small group of community volunteers for their love of community and the Holiday Season. The parade is 100% donor funded by local businesses, charities, and the community at large.

Each year brings something new and exciting, but always present are the glittering lights, sounds of music, Holiday cheer, and laughter. This year's parade will not disappoint.
