CAMBRIDGE - The Cambridge-Dorchester County Christmas Parade is held annually on the first Saturday in December each year. Once hailed as the 'largest nighttime parade', the parade continues each year as a tradition throughout the decades.
After being canceled last year due to the pandemic, the event was back on Saturday, with nearly 100 entries that passed enthusiastic crowds along the route through downtown Cambridge.
The parade is hosted and brought to the community by a small group of community volunteers for their love of community and the Holiday Season. The parade is 100% donor funded by local businesses, charities, and the community at large.
“We hope everyone had a great time at the 72d Annual Cambridge-Dorchester County Christmas Parade,” a statement from organizers said. “Lots of great entries and the bands were wonderful. Again, thanks to the donors who support the parade.”
