The parade and tree lighting will take place on Sunday, Nov. 25. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive by Coast Guard boat at the eastern end of the central waterfront boardwalk, near the Harbormaster office at approximately 3:45 p.m. and will then proceed in a parade up through Market Square, up State Street, down Pleasant, and then down to Green Street and back to Market Square.
