‘A Dr. Seuss Christmas’ in store for annual Yule parade

SoVaNow.com / July 25, 2016
Destination Downtown South Boston has announced the theme for this year’s South Boston Christmas Parade, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3, at 5 pm.

The theme this year is “A Dr. Seuss Christmas”. Parade coordinator Sara Davis said, “In July, we brainstorm on ideas for the current year and the next year’s theme. This theme seemed to be a fun one to try. Entrants could have a good time with The Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2, or any other Dr. Seuss characters and books.

“We like to come out with the theme in July so you can have plenty of time to build your floats, because we want to be as big as Macy’s. And if last year’s parade was any indication, Macy’s didn’t have anything on South Boston.”

“The parade itself has become a big operation and we’re fortunate to have the ongoing support of businesses and individual sponsors as well as volunteers from in and around the area who help make it all work.”

Davis says it’s never too soon to get started. “Since the parade is becoming more of a destination parade, we try to get off to a running start in July because we start getting phone calls and questions from churches and non-profit organizations in July asking about the theme so they can start meeting and planning their float or entry.”

Anyone with questions about the parade or how to participate can call Davis at 434-575-4208 or download a parade application at http://www.downtownsobo.com
