Mayfair Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade is ready to march into town

The 36th an­nu­al May­fair Holmes­burg Thanks­giv­ing Parade has been set for Sunday, Nov. 18, from noon to 3 p.m. The rain date is Nov. 25.

The theme is Neigh­bor­hood Unity.

The grand mar­shals will be civic as­so­ci­ation pres­id­ents Rich Frizell (Holmes­burg), Joe De­Fe­lice (May­fair) and Mary Be­nussi (Ta­cony).

The parade route will be on Frank­ford Av­en­ue from Rhawn Street to Knorr Street.

The May­fair Busi­ness As­so­ci­ation is pro­du­cing the parade and wel­comes mem­bers of the com­munity to par­ti­cip­ate by design­ing their own floats. Prizes will be awar­ded to the most cre­at­ive, fun­ni­est and best parade-themed floats. All floats must be fam­ily ori­ented and no high­er than 12 feet be­cause of the SEPTA trol­ley lines.

Parade or­gan­izers are re­quest­ing that the pub­lic pat­ron­ize only ap­proved vendors who will be wear­ing pink but­tons. They are also ask­ing chil­dren not to spray silly string on parade par­ti­cipants.

To par­ti­cip­ate, vo­lun­teer, be­come a spon­sor or for more in­form­a­tion, call 215-624-6660, vis­it                           www.thanks­giv­ing­parade.org, e-mail info@thanks­giv­ing­parade.org or check out the May­fair Holmes­burg Thanks­giv­ing Parade page on Face­book. ••
