By The Town of Surfside Beach
Mark your calendar for December 8, 2018. It’s the 39th annual Surfside Beach Christmas Parade! It’s a great event for the whole family, and a wonderful kickoff to the holiday season.
The parade starts at 2:00 pm on Melody Lane in Surfside, and continues up Ocean Boulevard to Surfside Drive. It turns up Surfside Drive and continues to Poplar Drive. The parade has eighty (or more) organizations entered, and some of the organizations have multiple vehicles.
What would a parade be without a marching band? A walk down the street… That’s why we can have up to four marching bands depending on the weather. The Surfside Beach Police, and Fire and Rescue departments will be represented with patrol vehicles, fire trucks, and rescue vehicles. Local animal organizations come with dogs and horses to contribute to the festivities. There are a number of professional floats in the parade.
Of course, the star of the show, Santa, will be there. He arrives on his own float, with a group of attendants by his side. Don’t tell the kids, but every organization comes equipped with a load of candy, so make sure you bring a container to hold all your loot.
It’s free, it’s fun, its the Surfside Beach Christmas Parade. Make it an annual tradition in your household.
