Organizers are anticipating 3,000 participants for Hatboro's 52nd annual holiday parade on Nov. 18.
The Hatboro Holiday Parade will march into town on Sunday with great fanfare. For spectators, that means 100 units participating - or approximately 3,000 participants walking and riding into town - according to parade organizer Meredith Baker. The parade route has been reversed from recent years and will begin at York Road and Summit Avenue and continue southbound to Newington Drive. Besides the challenge of a new route, the parade had faced economic challenges as well. Earlier this month, Baker told Patch that the Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce was still striving to reach its $15,000 fundraising goal, and, just two weeks ago, had been $10,000 short of that goal. On Tuesday, Chamber President Joe Tryon, who also serves as president …

The Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce is $10,000 shy of its $15,000 fundraising goal for the annual parade.
With less than two weeks to go before the 52nd annual Hatboro Holiday Parade marches into town, organizers say they have raised one-third of the money needed to put on the two-hour spectacle. “Each year the parade becomes increasingly popular, which means production costs go up as well,” parade organizer Meredith Baker said of the borough mainstay, which has been funded by the Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce for the last 36 years. “The Chamber funds all advertising and marketing of the parade, all fees associated with the parade such as performance fees of string bands and marching bands as well as administrative costs.” Baker said fundraising efforts have so far netted about $5,000 of the $15,000 goal to cover the parade’s various …

The Hatboro Borough Council approved a rerouting of the annual Hatboro Holiday Parade.
Taking a cue perhaps from Santa Claus himself, the organizers of the Hatboro Holiday Parade are bringing jolly old St. Nick and the more than 2,000 participants from the north for the Nov. 18 festive trek through town. The Hatboro Borough Council on Monday unanimously approved the reversal of the 52nd annual parade's route - heading southbound instead of northbound on York Road. Officials from the Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce - the entity that has put on the parade for the last 36 years told the council earlier this month that the reversed route would be faster and would help with traffic congestion. The two-hour-long parade, which draws upwards of 50,000 spectators, would begin where it had previously ended, at Summit Avenue on …

The Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce is requesting that the route for the annual Hatboro Holiday Parade be reversed.
Santa, Mrs. Claus and all the other holiday elves atop floats and in procession may see a new direction for Hatboro during the borough's annual holiday parade. Officials from the Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce - the entity that has put on the parade for 36 of its 52 years - has requested that the Hatboro Borough Council allow the parade route to be reversed, heading southbound instead of northbound on York Road when Santa Claus and crew come to town on Nov. 18. "It kind of disperses the flow of traffic downhill," Chamber volunteer Chris Dubil told the council Monday night, adding that the new route would be "much faster." As proposed, the two-hour-long parade, which draws upwards of 50,000 spectators, would begin where it has …
