On Wednesday, December 8th community businesses, churches, schools, and civic organizations will come together in the spirit of holiday cooperation and fun at the '40th Annual City of Boca Raton Holiday Street Parade'.
Now in its 40th year, this years festive parade is scheduled to start at 7:30 PM with participants proceeding north on Federal Highway from SE 8th Street to Mizner Park, marching to the holiday theme of “ Holidaze Tropicale”.
Join the line-up of many local choirs and marching bands, entertainers, dancers, cheerleaders, baton twirlers, various drill teams, and a wide array of colorful floats as they brighten the streets of Boca Raton this holiday season!
