Tradition starts the season with good cheer
Macy’s will usher in the holiday season on Friday, Nov. 26 with the annual Macy’s Holiday Parade and the opening of Santaland.
Straight from the North Pole, Santa Claus will be spreading joy and good cheer as he winds his way through the streets of downtown on his brand new sleigh. Accompanied by inflatable floats, costumed characters and local community groups, Santa will lead the parade to the downtown Macy’s where he will open Santaland at 11 a.m. for the 2010 holiday season.
The Macy’s Holiday Parade, one of Oregon’s most treasured family traditions, will begin promptly at 9 a.m. on the corner of Northwest Park and Davis. The parade will travel east on Northwest Davis to Broadway, south on Broadway to Southwest Alder, east on Alder to Fourth, north on Fourth to Flanders, and west on Flanders to Northwest Park Avenue.
The parade lasts approximately one hour. Those wishing to secure curbside seating are encouraged to arrive early.
Santaland will offer daily photos with Santa through Friday, Dec. 24. The famous monorail will also be on display next to Santaland for candid family photo opportunities.
