Disco to make triumphant return at SoBo Christmas Parade Dec. 2

South Boston News

Organizers are already meeting as they work to make the South Boston Christmas Parade bigger and better. Destination Downtown South Boston has announced the theme for this year’s Parade, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2, at 5 pm.

This year’s theme is “A Disco Christmas”.

Parade coordinator Sara Davis said, “Put on those thinking caps and start planning! Do You Remember? BeeGees, Donna Summer, Kool & The Gang, Earth Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson, K C & The Sunshine Band, Gloria Gaynor, Chic, ABBA, and many more.

Or put a Disco twist on your favorite Christmas carol.

“We like to come out with the theme in July so everyone can have plenty of time to build their 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 visit downtownsobo.com for an application.
