Washington Street Mall Sponsoring Two Bands in the Christmas Parade
The merchants of the Washington Street Mall are happy to announce that they are sponsoring two South Jersey high school marching bands in the annual West Cape May Community Christmas Parade, which takes place Saturday evening, December 4th. The Washington Street Mall Business Improvement District, comprising over 75 merchants in the heart of Cape May, has donated $2,000 so the Wildwood High School and West Deptford High School marching bands can participate in the parade. The bands are set to dazzle spectators with talented renditions of classic holiday music. Each band will be led by a banner announcing the sponsorship.
The West Cape May Community Christmas Parade, Cape May’s biggest event of the winter, steps off at 5pm at the West Cape May Fire Hall. The parade can be expected to arrive in the Mall area sometime after 5pm, with a route that takes it on Perry Street and down Carpenters Lane. To enhance the festivities, we've invited Santa Claus to hang out on the Mall before the parade, and he joyfully accepted the invite. He will be strolling the Mall starting at 1pm, accompanied by local musician Andy Dimacale. We invite you to come early for fabulous Christmas shopping, delicious food and drink, a visit with Santa, and local live music, all among picturesque holiday décor.
