South Boston Christmas parade gets bigger

SoVaNow.com / December 05, 2013


The South Boston Christmas Parade, coming up this Saturday at 5 p.m., continues to grow. With a theme of “Christmas Through the Eyes of Child,” the parade has attracted several late float entries, bringing the total to 24.

Also featured will be five marching bands, fire trucks, antique cars and trucks, horseback riders and of course, Santa Claus. There promises to be something for everyone to enjoy.

With potential bad weather on the horizon — forecasters say it may rain Saturday afternoon — town officials have discussed the possibility of delaying the parade in case of inclement weather. However, that decision will not be made until later in the week.

Prior to the parade, guests are invited to tour the New Brick Historic Lofts located at 701 Jefferson Avenue from 3-5 p.m. Developers will be on hand to show off the one- and two-bedroom units at the rehabbed tobacco warehouse.

Offering a unique lifestyle in a classic setting, the apartments will be available in early January and may be viewed at http://www.newbrickhistoriclofts.com.
