Newburyport Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting

Holiday cheer and community spirit shone brightly through the cloudy skies and rain drops at the Newburyport Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting , with huge crowds welcoming Santa and Mrs Claus, cheering on the High School Band and Championship Soccer Team that pulled Santa's wagon with glee . 

I was happy to join Mayor Sean Reardon, former Representative Jim Kelcourse, and Representative- elect Dawne Shand in the parade, and for some singing with the crowd in Market Square before the lighting of the beautiful tree.

Thanks to the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, the Newburyport Rotary Club, the crew of US Coast Guard Station Merrimack River, and all who worked to make such a wonderful afternoon possible.
