The Mayor’s Christmas Parade in Baltimore, Maryland, definitely delivers. 

For the 46th year, the Mayor’s Christmas Parade will take over Baltimore on Sunday, December 2, at 1 p.m.

Featuring 160 marching units, floats, local TV and radio personalities, pageant queens, and more, the annual parade will stretch along a two-and-a-half-mile route. Last year, more than 25,000 people were in attendance, so if you want to get a spot where you can see the floats, make sure to pack up the kiddos and arrive early! Santa will make an appearance as well.

If you get hungry, local restaurants will be featuring food and drink specials to satisfy your cravings.
