Santa Parade and Tree Lighting Tomorrow 3pm

Gloucester’s annual Santa Parade and Kent Circle Tree Lighting is tomorrow (SUN).

Parade begins at the State Fish Pier at 3pm and ends at Kent Circle for the tree lighting around 4:30pm.

Look for the Pink Elephant and donate an unwrapped toy to Toys4Tots.

Santa arrives at Kent Circle by fire truck and children are invited to sit on Santa’s lap.

Everyone at Kent Circle is invited to sign holiday cards to be sent to our troops overseas and to bring an unwrapped toy for children in need.

Free popcorn and hot chocolate provided by Lobsta Land and The Gloucester Fund.

Music at Kent Circle by the Docksiders, North Shore Bell Ringers and the Firemen’s Band.

Bring the kids and help celebrate the season with your friends and neighbors in Gloucester!


  • So exited for this!!

    Thanks for the reminder.


  • Love the Christmas parade, another great tradition that makes our city different from all the rest. I wish it were more kid-friendly, though. We went for several years but the long time between when the parade ends and when the tree is lighted is too long for little kids. Just one guy’s opinion, but the speeches and long downtime take away from the event. Now we march in the parade and all the families we know with little kids — the ones most excited about Santa and the ginormous Christmas tree — leave before the tree lighting. I’m a big fan. Just wish it were more little kid-friendly. Thanks to all the organizers who volunteer hours and hours to put it together.
