Performing groups include North Hunterdon and Voorhees High School marching bands, St. Ann’s Bagpipe Band, Boy Scout Marching Band and Alexandria Middle School Band - along with the always-colorful Mummer’s Band. Music will be featured on most of the floats.

Crowd favorite costumed characters will include Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Ronald McDonald and crew, Sam The Snowman, Christmas Minion, Elsa and Anna, Our Zany Madcap Elf and Scooby Doo.

The parade route will be the same as last year, forming on Center and New Streets. The parade will turn 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 then 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 from the South Ridge Community Church (located on Pittstown Road just beyond the entrance to Walmart Plaza) to the Clinton House restaurant. Buses will start at 5 p.m. and will return immediately after the parade.

Porta-Johns will be located at the Lower Center Street parking lot just behind Main Street.

Flemington's parade will be held on Sunday.
