Pocomoke Christmas Parade Cancelled for 2020

Due to COVID-19 we regret to inform you that the 2020 Pocomoke Christmas Parade has been cancelled for this year. We waited for as long as we could in hope that things would change but they have not. With following the CDC and the health departments guidelines we feel that we can not ensure the safety of not only the participants or the committee members but we cannot for the more than 2000 people that attend this great event. As we look forward into 2021, we hope to bring you a bigger and even greater experience here in Pocomoke.

So please check back on this website (www.pocomokechristmasparade.com) or like our page on Facebook (Pocomoke Christmas Parade) to get up to date information on next year's event. Until then please stay safe and well. We hope to see you in 2021.

Thank you,
Pocomoke Christmas Parade Association

Tuesday night on December 3rd, 2019, we will celebrate our 47th year!

Pocomoke City will be transformed into a "Winter Wonderland", playing host to one of Delmarva’s largest nighttime Christmas parades.

Always held on the first Monday night after Thanksgiving, the Pocomoke parade has become an Eastern Shore tradition and will attract over 100 units from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia along with thousands of spectators.

Each year the parade features marching bands representing high and middle schools from seven counties in three states. Also featured will be beautifully decorated and lighted floats entered by schools, civic organizations, churches, and commercial enterprises.

Clowns, marching units, fire departments, equestrian units, and of course Santa Claus will round out the two-hour event, slated to kick-off at 7:00 p.m. sharp. The route will take the parade north on Market Street beginning at 14th Street and ending at the Pocomoke River.

Professional judges, including members of the National Judges Association (NJA), will score entries in many different categories. Cash prizes and trophies will be awarded immediately following the event to the top entries in each category.

A special thanks to the community of Pocomoke City and surrounding areas for the recent support given to us to continue this great tradition that has been a part of the town for over four decades.
