A Milford Tradition, the Welcome Santa Parade

Generations of Milfordians have started the holiday season lining the streets of their town to watch bedecked fire trucks with sirens blaring, floats sponsored by area businesses and bands playing seasonal tunes thanks to the Milford Permanent Firefighters Association. And this year will be no exception as the Association sponsors the 25th Annual Welcome Santa Parade through Milford on Sunday, December 2. The parade starts about 4 p.m. at Veteran's Memorial Drive near Hannaford Supermarket, proceeds on East Main and Main Streets before concluding at Draper Memorial Park in the heart of Milford.

The thousands of onlookers from the very young to the young at heart, who line the parade route, will enjoy watching the decorated fire trucks from over 30 area towns, holiday themed-floats sponsored by groups and businesses, local school bands, several contingents of pipers and a special guest or two. Last, but by no means least, Santa himself will ride into town with his sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.

Firefighter Ted DePaolo, who helps coordinate the annual parade, said it's not too late for businesses, groups, bands and individuals to join the fun on Sunday, December 2. Anyone interested in participating in the parade should stop by either one of the town's fire stations – 21 Birch St. or 1 Spruce St. -- or call the business phone, 508-473-1215, to register.

And while no usually likes snow, on Sunday, December 2, a lot of people don't mind a sprinkling of the white stuff as Milford turns out to welcome Santa to town.
