Frederick Christmas Parade 2013

Christmas Parade Held in Frederick

   Frederick's annual Christmas Parade was held on Thursday evening, December 19, 2013.

   The lighted Parade featured three Frederick school bands, floats, beauty queens, and much more. As daylight turned to dusk, the lighted parade entries followed a route that was new this year – Grand Avenue from 17th Street westward to 8th Street.

   Large crowds turned out to watch the parade and to attend the Frederick Chamber of Commerce Christmas Bucks drawing and Ag Booster Chili Day Dinner that followed.
