The Saline Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be working with city officials to bring the community a brand new stationary, socially distanced parade this year; the entertainment will stay put as attendees drive-through the Parade route. Scheduled for Saturday, December 5th at 5:30p, the parade will be a drive-through experience for attendees as they circle around Thibault Ln. between Saline Middle School on Maple Rd. & Liberty School on N. Ann Arbor St.
With the location change comes another change the SACC is pleased to bring to the community…the Chamber Parade for 2020 will be known as the “45th Annual Saline Winter Parade!” Over the years this event has steadily gained a reputation as one of the biggest and best Parades in all of southeast Michigan. The SACC relies on community members, both in the private & business sector, to support the efforts of the Chamber office.
Applications will be open by the end of the week. Applicants are encouraged to apply online or they can download the form and return it to the Chamber offices, but don’t forget they have moved. Direct all questions to the office staff who will be happy to help you in any way. Anyone interested in volunteering can also contact the office as we are always looking for enthusiastic community members.
The traditional festivities have been adjusted this year. Parade week kicks off with a special Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, December 1st at 6p. Held at the Saline’s main intersection at Michigan Avenue & Ann Arbor Street in front of KeyBank, there will be singing, decorating and light refreshments served. Be sure to dress for the weather as the event will be held outside. Both Santa’s Village & Treasure Trail to Santa will not be held in 2020.
We look forward to celebrating the Holiday season with you this year!
Applications can be found online and are now open.
