2022 Christmas parade sets off at 7 p.m. on Main Street


ALMONT — The recent cold snap is a frigid reminder that the Almont DDA’s “Holly Day Light Parade” is just around the corner.

This year’s parade takes place on Saturday, Dec. 3, and will make its way down Main St. at around 7 p.m.

The parade will feature its usual array of lighted vehicles, tractors, floats, Almont fire trucks, various marching and walking units, and lively holiday musical selections from the Almont High School Marching Band.

Of course, most in the crowd will be hoping to get a close-up view of Santa Claus, who will be lighting the tall tree at the northwest corner of Main and W. St. Clair streets after the parade.

Rumor has it that Santa is expected to be available to hear children’s Christmas wishes both before and after the parade.

Register by Nov. 29

Those wishing to participate in the parade are asked to register by Tuesday, Nov. 29. The parade lineup takes place at 6 p.m. on North St., near the Almont Car Wash.

For further information, call the Almont DDA office at 810-798-8125.
