Parachuting Santa Kicks Off Annual Parade & Toy Drive
By: Rotary Club of Flagler Beach
The much-anticipated Santa will parachute onto the beach at 1 p.m. just north of the pier. The parade will start immediately after "touchdown."
Attendees are asked to please bring a toy for Project Share if they are able. Project Share has been the major service project of the Rotary Club of Flagler Beach for 18 years. The club has committed to provide 1,300 children this year with Christmas toys, clothes and bicycles. There will be pickup trucks and golf carts in the parade for spectators to put their toy donations in.
There will be a performance area at the intersection of A1A and SR100 and groups or marching bands are invited to perform. The parade route runs from A1A North at 6th Street to A1A South at 6th Street. The application can be downloaded from www.FlaglerBeachRotary.org, www.cityofflaglerbeach.com and www.flaglerbeachmuseum.com. Questions can be emailed to info@FlaglerBeachRotary.org.
Immediately after the parade trophies for Best of Parade, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for Best Marching Unit, Best Holiday Theme and Judge's Choice will be given out at Veteran's Park. The Flagler Beach Fire Department will be hosting a children's party with Santa. The party will take place in the Fire Department located at 320 S. Flagler Avenue in Flagler Beach.
