Carlisle Christmas Festivities

The Middlesex Diner float travels along North Hanover Street during the Carlisle Christmas Parade.

The Downtown Carlisle Association announced the winners of the 2017 Christmas Parade held on Friday.

More than 50 units competed in four categories: Commercial Entries, Marching Bands, Public Service Entries and Non-Commercial Entries. Two local judges compared and scored the units on attractiveness and adherence to the parade theme of “Light Up The Night.”
