Merry Christmas to all!!!! The Sanford Christmas parade was a great success with over 50 floats and organizations involved. The Central Carolina Jaycees helped out the Chamber this year with hope to take the reins of the parade next year with their help.
Future plans are by the third year making the Sanford parade completely a Central Carolina Jaycees event. The members that took part in the parade this year helped with placement of floats and vendor registration.
This year’s event followed the same route as last year, starting at the Elks Club on Wicker, traveling through downtown and ending back at the Elks Club on Carthage Street.
This parade continues its family fun event and has been a Sanford tradition for nearly 60 years.
