Town Christmas Light Parade rings in season

  • Thursday, November 21, 2013

The Mount Pleasant Christmas Light Parade will be held Sunday, Dec. 9.

The Town of Mount Pleasant Tree Lighting and Christmas Light Parade has become a highlight of the season in the Lowcountry. On Sunday, Dec. 8, more than 100 groups will participate in the procession from Shem Creek to Sea Island Shopping Center.

The entries will include beautifully lit and creatively decorated floats, marching bands, walking groups, antique cars and of course Santa on a Fire Engine for a grand finale. Always a crowd favorite, the Wells Fargo Stagecoach will return to the parade this year.

“School floats and groups are the heart of the Christmas Parade every year,” said Special Events Planner Nicole Harvey. “Participating in the parade gives children of all ages the opportunity to engage in their community and offers a wonderful chance for schools to showcase their programs.”

The Town of Mount Pleasant offers a decorating allowance for all participating schools along with cash prizes for the top two winners who are judged by a panel in two categories: creativity and education.

“Even if they don’t have the ability to put together a big float, we encourage schools to enter sports teams, achievement or service groups – the possibilities are endless and kids really love participating in this amazing evening,” said Harvey.
