BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade in Baltimore and the Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade in Annapolis are both on USA Today’s list of the Top 10 holiday parades in the U.S.
The parades were nominated by the publication’s editors and voted on by readers.
This was the 45th year for the Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade in Hampden, which travels a 2.5-mile route and attracts thousands eager to see floats, bands, WJZ personalities, dozens of Harley Davidsons and, of course, Santa Claus. It came in third on the list.
The Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade, which came in fourth on the list, happens every second Saturday in December in the Annapolis Harbor, and features boats transformed into floating holiday ornaments with elaborate light displays that light up the waterway.
