The Annual Christmas Parade follows the next day, complete with bands, floats, and all the trappings of the season on the streets of downtown Manteo. Come early along Queen Elizabeth Street as the Big Little Town Christmas Parade starts its route from Manteo High School. Pre-show festivities start at the review stand in front of the historical Dare County Court house with Master of Ceremonies Della Basnight. She invites everyone downtown to see the Christmas parade with marching bands from First Flight, Manteo, Columbia and Cape Hatteras High Schools. This year’s Grand Marshall is TBD. Over 50 floats registered last year and as always will end with Santa arriving on the fire truck to visit with the children.
