The holiday season starts with Winslow’s annual Christmas Parade
I’m told, “Everyone should experience Winslow’s Christmas parade once.” It’s true because for a few hours the people of Winslow demonstrate what a successful community is all about. First of all, it’s diverse by default. Participation is open to everyone and there’s no registration fee. You can sign up and just walk. Also, vendors line the streets offering food from generations-old family recipes. People return every year to see old friends and enjoy their favorite treats.
It’s best to arrive Friday or early Saturday and plan to stay ’til Sunday. An estimated twenty-two thousand others will join you and parking is a challenge. Fortunately, the streets are closed to traffic allowing the parade to follow a loop over several blocks freeing the sidewalks.
