Brockton Christmas Holiday Parade and Celebrations 2017

The 31st  annual Greater Brockton Holiday Parade will be held on Saturday November 25th. Besides the parade there is a whole day  of family friendly events to kick off the holiday season. Brockton is re-branding themselves as the USA Christmas Town. Brockton is where the spirit of a community is inspired by the selfless actions of one man, 125 years ago. We all want to believe that our efforts will have a lasting legacy – that we can indeed “change the world” – but very few of us will ever know for certain the impact our lives will have on the world around us. Such is true of James Edgar, a humble but generous businessman who was in the business of caring.

November 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Tree Lighting  families are invited to join Santa’s Elves at City Hall Plaza for the annual
