The Falmouth Chamber of Commerce is working with the Town of Falmouth Special Events Committee to bring back live events for the traditional Holidays by the Sea Weekend which is scheduled for Dec. 3 through 5 this year.
“We felt it would be important for the community to celebrate these events in a live setting with our neighbors once again,” said Falmouth Chamber President Michael Kasparian. “We are hopeful that Falmouth will continue to see a downtrend in COVID cases and are busy planning for a full weekend. Of course, we will follow any future mandates that may be issued by the Commonwealth in regard to COVID-19 and have contingency plans for virtual events if necessary.”
Traditionally, the weekend kicks off with Christmas Caroling at Nobska Lighthouse led by The Solstice Singers. If construction impedes the ability for caroling at Nobska Lighthouse, an alternative location will be identified and announced at a future date.
Main Street in downtown Falmouth will once again be closed to traffic on the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 4 to make way for the annual Jingle Jog which will begin and end on Main Street. A new route and start of race time will be announced sometime in the near future.
The Falmouth Village Association is planning to host activities for families on Main Street and Queens Buyway during the Christmas Stroll, with extended hours for holiday shopping and dining. The Lighting of the Falmouth Village Green will take place at 6 p.m. this year to allow families more time to enjoy the activities on Main Street afterwards.
The 58th Annual Christmas Parade, “Together for Christmas,” will step off from Dillingham Avenue at noon on Sunday Dec. 5. Decorated floats, bands, animals, and walking groups will come together once again to march down Main Street to the Falmouth Village Green.
Parade applications are available for download online at www.falmouthchamber.com or may be picked up in person at the chamber offices located on Academy Lane just off of Main Street.
