Darlington holds Christmas Parade
The City of Darlington is pleased to inform everyone that the Darlington Rescue Squad will again sponsor the Annual Darlington Rescue Squad Christmas Parade. They enjoy presenting this event and hope everyone will join them this year. The parade will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 at 4pm.
The line-up for the parade will be at Fitness World Gym, at 1032 Pearl St. in Darlington, starting at 2pm. The route will end at the intersection of Spain Street & Cashua Steet. They ask that all floats, rented and “design your own”, keep with the Christmas theme. Participants riding in cars, trucks or vans are asked not to position themselves on sunroofs, t-tops or the hood of cars as the safety of all is our top priority. Due to incidents in past parades, there will be a few changes to be noted.
(1) If you wish to throw candy you must be able to throw it out of the roadway and onto the sidewalk.
(2) Any participants that are caught playing music that contains offensive language will be asked to leave the parade immediately. All music played must keep in line with the Christmas theme.
(3) If your group chooses to walk, you must be able to keep pace with the parade. If you cannot, you will be asked to walk alongside the parade.
(4) We also ask that you respect that we have our “Santa” for the parade and that no other Santa outfits are worn.
We will try hard to make sure that all vehicles who pay together as a group are placed in the line-up as a group. Please make sure you let one of our staff members know about your group when you arrive for line-up. As we encourage community involvement, there will be a Golf Cart contest again this year. All golf carts wishing to participate will have to be decorated in a Christmas theme. The carts will be judged as they follow the parade route and a winner will be announced at the end. 1st place will receive $50.00.
