Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade 2019

Friday, November 29th, 2019 by The Professor

Its that time of year again! And WLOY is ready to go. We’ve pulled the old float down from its hibernation and are cleaning it up for another parade. We’ve got candy canes, we’ve got a float, and we’ve got costumes! We’re prepping Snoopy’s playlist and getting ready to march down Falls Road to 36th Street and all the way to Chestnut.

Along the route we’ll pass some judges who won’t give us a trophy again (but we’re not bitter, really) and we’ll make a lot of kids happy with Snoopy and candy canes. Don’t worry, we’re not in it for the glory, we love it! Go HERE for all the details – see you Sunday December 8!
