This past Saturday, December 2nd, the Medfield Employers and Merchants Organization (MEMO) hosted its annual Holiday Parade on Main Street! The popular event featured various groups in Medfield, all showcasing their holiday cheer!

The parade route commenced at the high school/middle school, proceeding from Pound Street up South Street to Route 109, and then down to Park Street. From there, it continued down Oak Street, to Pleasant Street, to Metacomet Street, and back to the school grounds.

The parade began with a police escort and an accompanying firetruck, followed by the Medfield High School (MHS) Marching Band. Numerous troop members walked along the route, both Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownies, and Girl Scouts, distributing various candies and sweet treats to spectators. The Girl Scouts dressed up in a variety of festive outfits, bringing merriment to the parade. The girls dressed up as The Grinch, Mrs. Claus, gingerbread people, polar bears, in Christmas onesies, and as Thin Mint cookies!

Aside from the performance by the MHS Marching Band, The Point Premiere School of Dance performed their routine during the parade for all spectators to enjoy. The MHS Cheerleaders showcased their skills through a cheering routine which brought cheer to all parade attendees.

The parade also featured several floats displaying the names of event sponsors such as Alison Brown, MDA Studios, Rockland Trust who hosted Best Buddies, and the Lions Club, along with their famous Eyemobile. The parade concluded with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, along with their volunteer elf helpers, who won the opportunity to participate at the tree lighting the evening before. Observers of all ages waved to Santa, excited to see Saint Nick as he ushered in Christmas cheer.

One parade participant, Kimberly from the Medfield Lions Club, was observed holding a banner in front of their bus. She expressed her enthusiasm for the event, stating, "It is a fun thing to witness, and all the kids look so cute dressed up in their costumes. It's just a really fun day."

The parade created an endless display of smiles and laughter as participants traversed the route. Throughout the event, Medfield community members lined the streets, commenting on each float and participant with awe. The community's love for the event was evident, marking a joyful kickoff to the upcoming holiday season. The favorable December weather added to the festivities. Cheers to a great holiday season and another fantastic holiday parade next year!
