Santa Claus is booked solid this time of year, but he never passes up a chance to be in a parade. Folks will find Santa hanging out in Camden this Thursday, Dec 10, 2015., evening as he joins the city’s 5th annual Holiday Parade and Winter Wonderland.

The parade sets off at 6:30 p.m., at the corner of Broadway and Market St., and proceeds down Market through Camden’s downtown to the waterfront, where it will end on Riverside Dr. in front of the Camden Children’s Garden.

Highlights include local marching bands, the garden’s Mum Bear and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. The Jolly Old Elf will bring up the rear of the procession, riding atop a ladder firetruck. A grand stand will be set up directly in front of the parade’s end point.

Afterwards, families will find that the garden has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland experience, where they can visit with Santa and other holiday characters.
