CLINTON, NJ-- The 30th annual Clinton Guild Christmas Parade will be held Friday, Dec. 2 starting at 7 p.m. It will begin with the Town Crier, Gene DeCleene, leading the Parade Executive Director, Frank Hooper, and representatives of the Clinton Guild, longtime sponsors and former parade participants.

DeCleene and Hooper are excited to lead the small-town parade, which will have 27 floats from local organizations, performing groups and nine professional floats. Participants include the North Hunterdon and Voorhees High School marching bands, St. Ann’s Bagpipe Band, the Alexandria Middle School band and dance team, S.K.I.T., Roger’s Dance Academy and StarMakers School.

Music will be featured on most of the floats.

The route will be the same as last year, with the parade forming on Center Street. The procession will turn left onto New Street, right onto East Main Street and proceed over to Main Street. It will then turn right onto Lower Center Street, which is a great spectator location. The parade will proceed up Lower Center Street, turning left and ending after crossing the Halstead Street bridge.

Drop off and pick up of participants will be at the Clinton Community Center. Shuttle buses will provide transportation to and from the South Ridge Community Church parking lot (on Route 514, Pittstown Road, just south of the entrance to Wal-Mart Plaza) and the Clinton House restaurant. Buses will start at 5 p.m. and will return immediately after the parade. PortaJohns will be located at the Lower Center Street parking lot just behind Main Street.

Numerous business sponsor the parade.

“Without their generous support the parade would not be possible,” the parade committee said. “A very special parade thank-you goes to the Clinton Police Department, the Clinton Fire Department and the Clinton Rescue Squad. Their tireless dedication to our parade over the past 30 years is greatly appreciated and never forgotten.”
