This Saturday, December 2nd, get ready to be thrust into the holiday spirit at the annual Exeter Holiday parade. This, by far is my favorite holiday parade in the seacoast area.

This year's theme is 'Six Decades of Hometown Holidays' and once again, WOKQ's Mark Ericson will be your emcee for the evening.

The Exeter Holiday Parade is expected to kick-off Saturday, December 2rd at 5:30pm from the OSRAM Plant on Portsmouth Avenue.

We'd love for you to stop by and say hi to Mark and me. We'll be stationed at the bandstand in downtown Exeter and announcing parade participants, leading up to the final float of the evening, the big guy himself...Santa Claus!
