The Chamber Presents Annual Parade To Start Off the Holidays

| No Comments

The Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the activities planned to kick off this year's holiday season.  Join us on Sunday, November 27, on Main Street in Metuchen for our 58th Annual Winter Festival Parade.  The theme of this year's parade is "The Season of Giving."  This long standing tradition in the Metuchen community will feature music by Metuchen High School Marching Band, St. Joseph High School's Falcons Holiday Combo, The Banjo Rascals, Fred Lehotay's Ragtimers Band, American Celts Pipes and Drums and more!  The parade kicks off at 2:00 pm, weather permitting, at the corner of Brunswick Avenue and Main Street.  Participants will travel down Main Street and turn onto New Street to end in the Pearl Street parking lot.  Be sure to join us at the Metuchen Senior Center at the conclusion of the parade for a visit with Santa and hot chocolate provided by the Metuchen Recreation Commission. If the weather is questionable, call the Chamber office at 732-548-2964, or visit either the chamber website at www.metuchenchamberexchange.com, or our facebook page at www.facebook.com/metuchenchamber, after 11:00 am for an announcement.  There is no rain date for this event.

As this year's theme is "The Season of Giving," we encourage everyone attending to bring non-perishable food items or gift cards from a local supermarket to help replenish local food pantries.  There will be donation bins placed at the review stand at the corner of Main Street and New Street as well as bins at the Metuchen Senior Citizens Center. Also, please consider donating an unwrapped toy to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The official drop-off sites in Metuchen are at Hailey's Harp & Pub, Martin and Son Jewelers, and George's Dry Cleaning and Tailoring. Donations will be accepted until December 15th.
