Rochester, Mich. – July 29, 2016- The Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce (RRC) is excited to announce the theme for the 65th Annual Rochester Hometown Christmas Parade, presented by Genisys Credit Union, which will march down Main Street on December 4, 2016. The theme for this year's Christmas parade is "Holiday Masquerade", celebrating the mystery and magic of the holidays on our very own Main Street.
The Parade Committee is asking children's groups, community organizations and local businesses to use the "Holiday Masquerade" theme to inspire their parade entry. Entries may include floats, dancers, costumes, horses, etc.
NEW THIS YEAR is our partnership with Paint Creek Center for the Arts. The children can make masquerade masks at the Art & Apples Festival, September 9-11, 2016!
Held on Sunday, December 4, 2016 the Parade begins at 2:00 PM at the corner of Tienken and Rochester Roads and continues south along Main Street to Third Street in Downtown Rochester.
