The beginning of December is here, and that means we are right in the middle of the annual holiday season. If you live in the Wellington, Florida area that also means it must be time for another festive annual event: the annual Wellington Holiday Parade!
Once again, the Village of Wellington and the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce are excited to co-host the 34th annual Wellington Holiday Parade this coming Sunday, December 10th, 2017. The theme of this year’s parade is “A World of Make Believe”. Over 25,000 people are expected to view the parade, which includes many notables including Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw. There will also be a special parade guest, pitcher Brad Peacock from the 2017 World Series Champion Houston Astros.
David and Kim Leland, co-owners of Print It Plus, a locally-owned and operated print, advertising and marketing company for the last 3 decades were excited to once again help in the planning and coordination of this year’s parade. In an interesting twist, daughter Kayla and son-in-law Chris Pragid will be taking the mantle of co-head Facilitators of the parade this year, keeping that important job in the family. This year it will be Chris and Kayla who will be helping the parade chairman to coordinate the over 2,500 participants, getting them lined up and released in proper order and time from 5 different staging areas. In addition Kayla will take on Kim’s usual role of overseeing that other parade participant needs get met, including making sure there is ample water for everyone involved.
The festivities start in Holiday Park at the Wellington Ampitheater from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There will be food, music and Arts & Crafts. The parade itself starts at 1:30 p.m. The parade includes local area marching bands, decorative floats, dancing groups and much more!
For those of you who live on and around the parade route in Wellington, please note that Forest Hill Blvd. and a number of the surrounding roads will be closed at 1:00 p.m. to ensure the safety of those pedestrians who will be walking in and around the parade route.
