Join us for a jolly good time at the annual Belmont Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 9th at 6:30 pm!
Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to line the streets of Belmont and experience the magic of the holiday season. Watch in awe as beautifully decorated floats glide by, spreading joy and cheer to all. The sound of marching bands will fill the air, adding a lively rhythm to the festivities.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Santa Claus himself, who will be making a special appearance in the parade! Wave to him and let him know what’s on your Christmas wish list. It’s a moment you won’t want to miss!
Before and after the parade, stick around for the post-parade collaboration celebration in the town square with the “Christmas On the Square” sponsored by the PTO. Enjoy live music, delicious food, and fun activities for all ages. It’s the perfect way to continue the merriment and create lasting memories with your loved ones.
The Grand Marshal for this year’s parade is Ms. Darrah Roberts, a sixth-grade teacher at Belmont Middle School, who will be riding in memory of her husband, Van Roberts, who passed away earlier this year. The Belmont Community and school system wanted to honor the service, leadership, and legacy that Mr. Roberts left behind in the many lives that he touched. Darrah & Van spent countless hours behind the scenes making sure the Belmont school campus and school was always standing tall in a positive light and they always supported our community. Mr. Roberts also made sure his students didn’t do without whether during the school year, after hours, or at Christmas. The community was able to carry on the legacy of Mr. Roberts with the Van Roberts Memorial Christmas Fund with over 50 children having a brighter Christmas as many continued to honor his legacy.
Darrah, Katherine, and family, “We want to thank you for sharing Mr. Roberts with our community and thank you for all that you do for our community. No matter where life may take you, you will always be a Belmontian. As we reflect on Mr. Robert’s legacy, let us remember the values he championed: kindness, perseverance, and servanthood. The Roberts will forever remain a cherished part of our school and our community.” She will be driven in the parade by her loving and supportive father, Greg Enlow.
