To mark its 30 th year, the parade will be filled with entertainment you will not find anywhere
else. There will be plenty of holiday cheer to go around with performances by Bo Steele of The
Band Steele. A World War II Avenger and B-28 will fly over the parade route as part of a salute
to all area veterans.

This year’s parade Grand Marshal is Alden Hirschfeld, captain of the Toledo Walleye.
Hirschfeld is in his fifth season with his hometown team. Hirschfeld is a Sylvania native, who
graduated from Northview High School.

The parade will have more than 80 units including color guards, giant balloons, clowns,
marching bands, and dance teams. And don’t forget jolly ‘ole St. Nick himself. Santa Claus will
go from the parade to Imagination Station to hear wishes from area boys and girls.
The parade route starts on Summit Street, travels down Jackson Street and Huron Avenue, and
ends on Washington Street.
