Parade, other events to be held this weekend
The holiday season will come alive this weekend in Gloucester. One of the weekend’s highlights will be Gloucester’s Citizen’s and Holiday Parade, which begins at 2 p.m. Saturday along Main Street.
The annual parade has been a Christmas staple in Gloucester for many years, and always winds up with the highly anticipated visit from Santa Claus on a red fire engine.
Throughout the day Saturday, the annual Holiday Parade Show, featuring arts and crafts vendors, will be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on the Court Circle.
Also on Saturday, Gloucester Arts on Main will host its Holiday Art Fair showcasing fine arts and crafts, holiday decorations and gifts, from noon to 6 p.m. at the gallery on Main Street, Gloucester.
The Rebecca Tabb Lloyd Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy will hold a Civil War Christmas Memorial Service beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday at Bellamy United Methodist Church, Gloucester.
