Holiday parade this Saturday


The City of Concord will host its annual holiday parade Saturday, Nov. 18, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The parade will form in the New Hampshire Department of Transportation parking lot and follow Loudon Road to the Steeplegate Mall parking lot.
Concord High School’s marching band will participate in the event, which is free and open to the public.  
Drum major Cameron Beaupre, a drum major for the marching band, says about the band participating, “It motivates little kids to get into the arts, and especially music, because they see the excitement of marching band.”
“We are proud to be asked to do this every year,” said Gabe Cohen, the music teacher in charge of the band.
The following streets will be closed on the day of the parade:
Loudon Road, Blodgett Street, Grover Street, Ormond Street, Burns Avenue, Canterbury Road, Drew Street, Ellsworth Street, Eastside Drive from Christian Avenue to Ormond Street, Northeast Village Road, Woodcrest Heights Road, Old Loudon Road, Branch Turnpike and Allard Street.
