The Falmouth Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Falmouth Special Events Committee are bringing back live events for the traditional Holidays by the Sea weekend from December 3 to 5.
“We felt it would be important for the community to celebrate these events in a live setting with our neighbors once again,” chamber president Michael Kasparian said. “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, December 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 PM 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 on Sunday, December 5, at noon. Decorated floats, bands, animals and walking groups will march down Main Street to the village green.
Parade applications are available for download at www.falmouthchamber.com or may be picked up at the chamber offices on Academy Lane just off of Main Street.
