The festivities culminate in the annual Christmas parade with a 3pm step-off from Merchant’s Way.  This year’s parade theme is “Main Street Magic”.  The parade will proceed entirely along Main Street this year and turn right onto Elm St. to end at the historic Tremont Nail factory complex.  The Old Company Store and A.D. Makepeace Company will host a tree lighting and a wishing tree where participants receive a ribbon to tie to the tree.  Hot chocolate and snacks will be available at the Wareham Historical Society Meeting House as well as the Old Company Store.

Parking is available throughout Wareham Village and walking is encouraged with shuttle service provided by the Wareham School Department.  Participants are encouraged to use various public parking lots including Pezzoli Square, Town Hall, and on street parking on Merchant’s Way and Main Street.  Please note that access to your vehicle, if parked on Merchant’s Way will be restricted starting at 2pm for the parade line up.
