Tour of Merrimack
Our annual Holiday Happenings event will take place on Sunday, December 6th but is going to look a little different this year. Due to COVID-19, the traditional Holiday Parade as we know it, will not occur this year. Instead we are holding what we’re calling Santa’s Merrimack Holiday Tour.
Santa & Mrs. Claus are going to be riding on a Fire Department vehicle and taking a tour across Merrimack. We are encouraging everyone to come out and wave to Santa & Mrs. Claus while social distancing from one of our per-determined locations in Town. Santa & Mrs. Claus will pull into the parking lots of these locations for a few minutes to wave to families before moving on to the next location.
Registration Open thru December 6th
No Cost to participate
Chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate
