Downtown Andover, Ma.
"A Christmas Story"
Andover's bravest once again invite all to the annual Firefighter's Santa Parade which will be held the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Andover Firefighters will continue theIR tradition of hosting the annual holiday gathering starting at 3 P.M. The parade will continue its traditional route from "The Park" and travel through the downtown business district. The Andover Firefighter's Relief Association, with assistance from The Andover Firefighters union, I.A.F.F. LOCAL 1658, has hosted the event since 1955, providing a majority of the funding and support needed. This tradition began with an annual fire truck parade around town, featuring Santa, followed by a fire house visit at the old Park Street Station. OVER THE YEARS IT has transformed into the great event it is today with numerous groups now taking part. The holiday parade is one of the many ways your local firefighters give back to the community they serve. Information on participation and sponsorship IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE, CLICK THE LINKS AT THE TOP OF THE HOMEPAGE.
UPDATE:THE PARADE START TIME HAS BEEN CHANGED TO 3 P.M. TO COINCIDE WITH ANDOVER'S "HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS" FESTIVITIES
WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO ENJOY THE PARADE AND STAY FOR THE TREE LIGHTING AND HOLIDAY STROLL LATER THAT EVENING.
