Christmas Parade brings holiday spirit to Main Street
Hundreds of people lined Main Street on Saturday afternoon for the return of the Wareham Village Association’s Christmas Parade.
Select Board members Peter Teitelbaum and Patrick Tropeano led the parade, ringing handbells and wished onlookers a merry Christmas in their role as “town criers.”
Behind them came dozens of local groups: People marched, drove decorated cars and tractors, wore costumes as varied as a softball and the Wizard of Oz, piloted floats and danced down the street.
The parade kicked off at 2 p.m. near Town Hall, coming down Chapel Street and proceeding down Main Street to conclude near Besse Park.
People started staking out their spots to watch as early as 1:30, setting up lawn chairs or creating cozy places to sit with blankets in truck beds.
By the time the parade began, some of the smaller children could hardly keep still from excitement.
Wareham Week stationed photographers along the parade route to capture some of the day’s fun.
