"It's a Gingerbread Thing" announced as theme for the
56th Annual Downtown Garden City Santaland Parade!
Even though it’s been one of the hottest summers in recent memory, plans are coming together for Garden City’s premier cold weather event- the 56th Downtown Garden City Santaland Parade. The 2016 parade will be Saturday, November 26 beginning at 10 am.
The theme of this year’s parade is “It’s a Gingerbread Thing” incorporating the City’s “It’s a Garden City Thing” campaign.
“Everyone has been so great with their floats and entries and incorporating the theme, said Margo Arnoske, one of the parade committee members. “We really hope everyone will have a great time with this theme.”
Last year over 70 entries are were in the parade including three marching bands, the Great Lakes Garrison Star Wars costuming group, the GCHS Homecoming Court, the Redford Jaycees Lawn Mower Drill Corp, the Harmony Acres Arabian Horses, Paws from the Detroit Tigers and Roary from the Lions, the American Legion Riders, the Royal Arch Masons, Sam the Fireman, the Redford Unicycle Club and dozens of local scout troops, community organizations, marchers, floats and more.
