The Marching Lancer Band and Color Guard will perform in the 54th Annual VFW Santa Parade in Haverhill, MA. This year’s theme is “Miracle on Merrimack Street”
The parade will start at 1:00pm forming at the Hunking Middle School and will march per usual down Route 125 through Bradford and over the Basiliere Bridge, but will take a left turn onto Merrimack Street into Washington Square and right onto Emerson Street where it will end at the corner of Emerson and Bailey Boulevard at the Haverhill Boys and Girls Club. All groups will disband on Bailey Boulevard in front of the Haverhill Police Station. This is a change from past years as the disbanding was further up on Kenoza Ave
This parade always has huge crowds lining the streets and always gives a warm welcome to the Marching Lancers!
Buses are expected to return to LHS by 3:00pm
Directions from Londonderry: Travel south on I-93 crossing into Massachusetts. Merge onto Rt 213 East via exit 48 and then onto I-495 North via exit 5B. Merge onto RT-125- S via exit 48 toward Ward Hill/Bradford.
