The City of Deltona’s third Christmas Parade themed “An Old Fashioned Christmas’’ is returning to Deltona Boulevard on Dec. 7. City staff believes Deltona Boulevard is a better location for safety reasons and provides an opportunity to highlight an area on the brink of redevelopment.
“Deltona Boulevard is a wider road with more lighting and sidewalks which allows emergency personnel and vehicle access throughout the route. It also is an opportunity for the City to support and highlight businesses along the Boulevard and to draw attention to its potential for economic growth,” said City Manager Dave Denny.
Marching bands, performers, floats, fire trucks, a life-size gingerbread house, Santa and all of his assistants will travel Deltona Boulevard from Balsam Street (where the U.S. Post Office is located) to Stratford Commons (near Dollar General) beginning at 6 p.m.
Participants are still welcome to submit their parade entry forms until Nov. 29. Forms are available at DeltonaFl.Gov or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants are encouraged to define and display what an old fashioned Christmas means to them using lights, tinsel and all things holiday.
