SEYMOUR - Preparations are under way for the 45th annual Seymour
Christmas Parade, to be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, November 27th in downtown.
The rain/snow date will be the next Sunday, December 4th.
The Parade association president Robert Lang has issued a call for new
units to take part in the parade.
“We encourage area organizations such as girl scouts, brownies, cub scouts & boy scouts,
youth groups, civic groups, churches, schools, and businesses to help us welcome the
holiday season in the valley by participating in this year’s event.”
As an incentive to participate, trophies and ribbons are awarded each
year in four categories. Marching units vie for the Sponheimer Trophy,
sponsored by Miller-Ward Funeral Home. The Mackenstein Trophy,
sponsored by the Seymour Lion’s Club, is given to the best float, while
school groups are eligible to win the LoPresti Trophy, sponsored by Hot
Tops. The best new unit in the parade will walk out with the President’s
Trophy, sponsored by Daddio’s Route 8 Containers.
In addition, all participants receive commemorative dated ribbons.
For more information or to enter a unit in the parade, please contact
