The Town of Mashpee and the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce Proudly Presents Mashpee's 2017 Season of Illumination
The Town of Mashpee and the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce are proud to present the spectacular lights display at the Mashpee Rotary and the Mashpee Chamber’s night-time illuminated Christmas Parade which are both holiday traditions the entire family can enjoy. Every year, people travel from all over to view the rotary lights and experience the parade.
The rotary lights are turned on the day after Thanksgiving at the Mashpee Commons with special festivities including carolers and the arrival of Santa Claus, and stay on until New Year’s Day.
From December 1st through December 12th the Chamber holds our annual Twelve Days of Christmas Online Auction with items for and donated by local businesses. Find great deals on perfect holiday gifts at this live, online auction and support #ShopLocal.
The Mashpee Chamber Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th and this year’s theme is “Mashpee Celebrates Under the Stars!” This unique, night-time event is where every float is brilliantly illuminated in the spirit of the season. Award winning bands dazzle the crowds with festive music, holiday garb, and of course more lights! The bands compliment local talent and organizations who participate each year. The parade kicks-off at 5:30 p.m. at Deer Crossing, aka “Reindeer Crossing”, travels through South Cape Village, and culminates at Mashpee Commons.
Parade day festivities start at 9 a.m. with Breakfast with Mrs. Claus at Soprano’s Ristorante followed by the annual Twelve Days of Christmas Scavenger Hunt with Deer Crossing merchants. A special appearance from Elsa and Olaf is planned.
A “Frozen Fun” magic show is scheduled at South Cape Village at 4:30 p.m. with Elsa and Olaf, hot chocolate and special holiday treats. Free festivities for the entire family including hot chocolate stands throughout the parade route are planned for an evening full of holiday spirit. It’s a great way to celebrate our community and the holiday season.
