The town of Berlin is more than a month into planning for its annual Christmas Parade and slots for participants are filling up quickly.
This 45th annual parade will carry the theme of “Toyland in Berlin” as it marches down Main Street Dec. 3 from 7-9 p.m.
Beginning at the corner of Powellton Avenue and Main Street, the parade will run south and conclude at the corner of South Main and Tripoli streets.
Categories in the parade are adult- and student-sponsored floats, adult and children’s marching and performing units, fire companies, commercial units, vehicle clubs, motorcycles, antique cars, school bands, ROTC marching units and “crowned youth.”
Trophies will be awarded for first, second and third place in each category.
New this year will be the inclusion of holiday characters during parade.
