Plymouth's 2018 Hometown Holiday Celebration is Nov. 30-Dec. 2


November 07, 2018
PLYMOUTH — Plymouth's 2018 Hometown Holiday Celebration and Parade is less than a month away! Invite your friends and relatives to come for a visit on the weekend of Dec. 1 to enjoy a great Plymouth tradition.

It's going to be another fun-filled weekend. Friday at 10:30 a.m., PSU's Operating Staff begins its 11th Annual Festival of Trees, a raffle for the beautifully decorated trees on display at the Senior Center. For Festival of Trees information, call Fawn Ouelette at 535-2185 or e-mail feouellette@plymouth.edu.

Saturday, Dec. 1, is a very busy Celebration day. New this year, at 3 p.m., Jeff Day, of Ice Designs, will be doing an Ice Carving Demonstration on the Common, continuing until just before the Parade begins. What can one man create out of 4 big blocks of Ice in 2 hours? Come find out, and bring your camera. Starting at 4 p.m., CADY elves will begin the Cookie Creation Station compliments of PSU Dining Services and all three Main Street Banks will have "warming stations" with free hot chocolate. At 4:30 p.m., Tim Keefe leads us in holiday songs and fun on the Common. And at 5 p.m., the Parade!!!! Prior year's parades have bustled with brightly lit floats, bands, a "wrecker train," decorated walking groups, a Chinese dragon, decked out animals, dance troupes, and, of course, Santa. What will this year bring? Will you be in the parade? We can't wait to see.

After the parade, Santa will visit with the kids at the Senior Center. For the ninth year, Alex Ray and the Rotarians will be hosting their "Chill-buster" barbeque while warm yourself at the big Bonfire on Green Street across from the Senior Center. What a great Christmas Season sendoff!

On Sunday, skate for free with Santa at the PSU ice arena from 1-3 p.m. Santa will be on the ice for visiting and for free photographs. Free skates are available thanks to PSU.

There's plenty of time to register for the parade. It's free! Get the registration form and guidelines from the Plymouth Rotary Website at www.plymouthnhrotary.org.
