CHELSEA – With Christmas fast approaching, the city of Chelsea is gearing up to celebrate its annual festivities in December.

The 23rd annual Chelsea Christmas Parade will bring its usual dose of cheer on the morning of Saturday 17th December.

“There will be over 70 entries this year,” said organizer Gerri Roberts. “There will be Cub Scouts, the Chelsea High School Band, elected officials, beauty queens, cheerleaders, athletes, large professionally made floats featuring our amazing local businesses and churches, horses, and of course, Father Noel will be there.”

Roberts said CBS 42 Chief Meteorologist Ashley Gann will co-host the parade with Chelsea Public Information Officer Wayne Morris at the grandstand, which will be located on the open field behind Winn-Dixie.

“There are no bad seats here,” Roberts said. “There’s room for everyone.”

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. at Chelsea Middle School and end at Winn-Dixie.

After the parade, residents are invited to a Splash’n with Santa party from 12-3pm at the Chelsea Splash Pad in Melrose Park.

Santa stopped by the platform on Wednesday, November 9 for a short interview about the new event.

“We’re going to bring a living snowball that people can walk on,” Claus said. “We will take down good old number 25, our train from the North Pole. I can also promise that on that day, December 17, we will make sure it snows in Chelsea.”

Santa and Mrs. Claus will greet children and be available to take photos with them.

In addition to Mrs. Claus, other special guests will include characters from Spider-Man and Beauty and the Beast.

Splash’n with Santa will also feature two bounce houses and train rides.
