The Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce is honored to announce that Archie Fagan of ShopRite will be this year’s Grand Marshal for the Hunterdon Holiday Parade, which will take place on Sunday, December 6th at 5 PM on Main Street in the County Seat of Flemington.
“We are very excited to honor Archie as our Grand Marshall for this year’s parade,” remarked Chris Phelan, Chamber President. “Archie, who represents ShopRite of Hunterdon County, is a great ambassador for their organization. His genuine care and warm greeting to customers is a wonderful example of the customer service that is so abundant throughout Hunterdon County.”
“Archie is a great icon of what make our local businesses in Hunterdon County so strong. I also want to thank Archie for his service to our Country as one of our outstanding Veterans who served proudly in World War II,” added Parade Chairwoman Hunterdon County Clerk Mary Melfi.
Our Parade Grand Marshall will be riding in Flemington Fire Department’s antique 1928 La France engine known as “Old Betsy.” The Flemington Fire Department is also holding a raffle.
Raffle, tickets are $10 per chance, or $100 for the book of 10. The drawing for the raffle will be at the Holiday Parade and done by Santa as he arrives at the reviewing stand in the Fire Company’s Tower Ladder. Tickets can be purchased by any member of the Fire Company and will also be available the evening of the Parade.
The Chamber is also excited to have some new musical performances added to the parade line up. They include David Cedeno & His Orchestra, The Patriot Brass Ensemble, and The St. Ann’s of Hampton Pipes and Drums. In addition, The Hunterdon Central Red Devil Marching Band will be present.
All local businesses and community groups are strongly encouraged to participate in this annual event. The Hunterdon Holiday Parade provides an opportunity for local businesses and the entire community to interact together during this holiday season. Float registration is $25 for non-profit organizations and $100 for businesses. All groups, with the exception of bands, must be on a float. To participate in the parade, your float must have a Holiday theme and be approved by the Chamber. For more information or to register, please call 908-782-7115 or visit www.hunterdon-chamber.org.
