Yardley Borough’s Christmas Parade returns in 2021 after a year off because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The event is Saturday, Dec, 4, and starts near the American Legion Post and train station on South Main Street at 3:30 p.m. It will proceed down South Main and turn left on Afton Avenue, finishing at Buttonwood Park around 5:30 p.m.
At Buttonwood, the borough Christmas tree will be lit and Santa and Mrs. Claus will greet parade attendees, among other highlights.
Among those marching in the parade will be the Clauses, several bands and dance groups and many others, borough Manager Paula Johnson said.
Mayor Chris Harding said canned goods and other grocery items will be collected for area veterans in need at the parade, and he urged those planning to attend to bring something to help those who have served in the armed forces.
Johnson added that South Main Street will be closed for the entire duration of the parade.
A Menorah lighting, an event borough officials said has become increasingly popular, will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 28, at Borough Hall, 56 S. Main St.
The borough’s American Legion Post at 215 S. Main St. will start its annual Christmas tree sale on Friday, Nov. 26. All proceeds from the sales will benefit area veterans in need, officials said.
