The Annual Holiday Parade will start at 3:00 p.m. in the Commons Shopping Plaza (515 Daniel Webster Highway) and will end in the Town Hall parking lot (6 Baboosic Lake Road). The theme of this year's parade is: "Building a Bridge to Merrimack's Future". The Parade Theme this year was chosen in recognition of Merrimack 275th Anniversary.
When the Parade kicks off, it will take a left onto Daniel Webster Highway and will proceed south. It will then take a right onto Baboosic Lake Road and then a left onto McElwain Street, disbanding at the Town Hall Parking Lot.
