16th Annual Malden Parade of Holiday Traditions & Christmas Tree Lighting

Malden Parade of Holiday Traditions

The City of Malden will kick off the Holiday Season with the 16th Annual Parade of Holiday Traditions on Saturday, November 30th at 2 PM. The Parade will lift off at the Salemwood School on Waite Street Extension, will bear left onto Maplewood Street, and will then travel west on Salem Street. The Parade will conclude at the reviewing stand which will be located at the corner of Ferry, Salem and Main Streets. All children should bring their letters to Santa so that his helpers from the Post Office can collect and send them to the North Pole! At the conclusion of the Parade, everyone is invited to the City Christmas Tree Lighting on the lawn of the Malden Public Library.

Each school will bring its own unique presence to the Parade, either with a float or demonstration, featuring the theme of “Celebrating Malden’s Diversity!” A cash prize of $350 will be awarded to the Art Department of the winning school’s float or presentation. The winner of the float contest will be revealed after the Christmas Tree Lighting following the Parade.

This year’s Parade Grand Marshals will be Bernie Colbert and Marie Shea of the Challenger League. “Marie and Bernie went above and beyond to make sure a Malden team played in the Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game at the Little League Baseball World Series this past summer,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “I’m honored to have them help us kick off the Holiday Season.” 

Parking for $3 will be offered at the Central Business District (CBD) Garage, 170 Centre Street (across from Walgreens on Route 60). Parking will not be allowed along the parade route from 1-4 PM, including Branch Street and Waite Street Extension. Violators will be towed. For more information, please contact the Malden Police Department at 781-397-7171.

For groups wanting to participate in the parade, please fill out the online Application at www.cityofmalden.org/holidayparade. For further information, please email kmanninghall@cityofmalden.org.
