The Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is very excited about this year’s Christmas parade scheduled for Saturday, December 10th. It will also be a victory parade for the Mashpee High School Football Team who won the Super Bowl in their division this year. “We’re all very proud of them!” said Mary Lou Palumbo, the Mashpee Chamber’s Executive Director.
The Mashpee Chamber has a lot planned for the festivities. Children can visit with Santa inside the Mashpee Library from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. sponsored by Eastern Bank. In addition,a hot chocolate stand will be set up at Trevi Cafe located at 25 Market Street/Mashpee Commons sponsored by First Citizen’s Federal Credit Union also from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The festivities lead up to the Maffei Landscaping Pre-Parade show at 5:00 p.m. in front of the Mashpee Library on Steeple Street featuring this year’s headliner band the Avalon String Band,
better known as the “Mummers” from Philadelphia. “The pre-show is new this year and it will be fabulous!” Palumbo said. She said the show will begin with 12 year old Jordyn Carpenter from Mashpee Middle School singing the National Anthem. The Detachment 125 Marine Corps League of Cape Cod Color Guard will also participate in the opening ceremonies followed by a special performance by the Avalon String Band. Once the performance is done, there will be a ribbon cutting kicking off the official start of this year’s parade. “This parade is bigger than ever!” said Linda Steele, parade chair from Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank. “We have an exciting line-up planned.” Meanwhile, the Mummers will perform for the crowd again on Joy Street at South Cape Village. The parade will end in the parking lot
behind Sovereign Bank. The evening culminates at South Cape Village with a post-parade party and additional activities.
Meanwhile, complete coverage of the Christmas Parade and behind the scenes interviews will be featured in the special holiday edition of Mashpee Magazine, The Mashpee Chamber’s on-line TV show sponsored by Carpet Barn. The parade will also air on Mashpee Public Access Television. The date TBD.
