The Dagsboro Christmas Parade date has been moved to December 13, 2017.
The Dagsboro Christmas Parade has officially been POSTPONED from Tuesday, December 5th and MOVED to Wednesday, December 13th at 7:00pm. Here is the reasoning behind the decision:
1. After looking at information from several different weather services (National Weather Service in NJ, Accuweather, Delmar Weather, etc.) pretty much all of them agreed that there will be rain in the area during the times of Parade lineup and the Parade itself – and we agreed that we did NOT want to hold the Parade in rainy conditions.
2. Our original rain date was Wednesday, December 6th – however, several of the Fire Police scheduled to work our Parade were already committed to the Milton Christmas Parade on the 6th. The lack of manpower to close down streets and provide traffic control both before and after the Parade promoted the decision to move the date to Wednesday, December 13th.
This was NOT an easy decision to make, but the Parade Committee had to make the best decision possible based on the information we had on hand — and we want to make sure as many people as possible can enjoy our Parade!

See you on Wednesday, December 13th at 7:00pm!
