Claymont's annual Christmas parade

The Claymont Christmas Parade is a holiday tradition honoring the
"Claymont Christmas Weed,"
a symbol of this community's indomitable spirit.

This year the parade begins Saturday, December, 1st at 10am and marches up Philadelphia Pike from the area of Maple Lane Elementary school to Darley Road! The parade includes marching bands, antique vehicles, New Castle County Police Department horses, fire and rescue equipment, floats, beauty queens, Scouts, civic groups and clubs. This year's event will also include a gingerbread house contest for children.

Best of all, this year's parade will feature the award winning Brandywine High School Marching Band! We will be there cheering for our very own Jesse marching with the Saxophones! Hope to see you there. Be sure to bring hot chocolate!
