Saturday, December 9th beginning at 5:30pm The parade begins at Deer Crossing, proceeds through South Cape Village, and ends in Mashpee Commons.
New Route You might notice the parade doing something rather odd this year… as you watch from your favorite viewing spot in Mashpee, the illuminated, night-time Mashpee Chamber Christmas Parade will go by… but in the opposite direction! This year, the Mashpee Chamber Christmas Parade Committee, the Town of Mashpee, the Mashpee Police Department, and the business community including all three major shopping plazas, devised a plan to include more businesses in the holiday excitement. The parade will begin at Deer Crossing at 5:30pm, make a big loop around South Cape Village, passing in front of Roche Bros, then find it’s way into Mashpee Commons, pass the Lanes Bowl & Bistro, head down North Street, take a left onto Market Street, and finish up with the final band performance on Steeple Street in front of the new band stand in Mashpee Commons. Don’t forget to look out for Santa on his special Santa Float, sponsored by Care… From the Heart.
New Trophies Every year, floats in the Mashpee Chamber Christmas Parade are judged by a small committee of volunteers. The categories are Best Children’s Entry, Best in Theme, Most Holiday Spirit, Most Original, and Best in Show. This year the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is excited to be able to present the winning floats with trophies! Every aspect of the Season of Illumination is bigger, better, and shinier than ever.
