Parade History

The Rochester Area Hometown Christmas Parade, started by the Lion’s Club in the 1950’s, became the responsibility of the Chamber in the early 1960’s. Cited as the largest Christmas parade in Michigan, spectators watch as over 100 floats, marching bands and community groups walk down Rochester Road, anticipating the final float, graciously donated by Bordine’s Nursey, carrying Santa and Mrs. Claus.
