We are excited to be hosting the 25th annual Jupiter Farms Christmas Parade and the 16th annual Jupiter Farms Craft Fair!
A Special Theme for this Milestone Anniversary:
Celebrating Jupiter Farms and 25 Years of the Jupiter Farms Community Christmas Parade!
All long-time residents are invited to join in the celebration. For entry ideas, the parade committee notes it is a wide open, wonderful theme, embodying all that make Jupiter Farms home and special to us. It’s like Thanksgiving, when we take time to appreciate the Farms and our place in it.
When you’re planning your parade entry, think about illustrating a slice of history, or what you like about the Farms and its surroundings, or maybe even, recasting a prize-winning float from prior years. And, as we know from all the previous parades, Jupiter Farmers will all think of more and better ideas than we could ever imagine.
For Parade Day, there’s a full day of activities to celebrate the Parade and Craft Fair. The Farms Market Place will host both events; The Farmhouse Cafe will serve breakfast from 8am, switching to lunch and snacks, and dinner fare and snacks ‘til closing.
After the parade there’ll be children’s activities, an opportunity to visit with Santa, and performances by the JFES choir and the Jupiter Farms Community Band, and of course the Awards Ceremony. Email lstaylr@AOL.com or call 561-746-8945 for information and entry applications.
There will be live music playing on through the evening so we can dance the night away.
This year, by unanimous acclaim, the Local Hero will be Melinie Wiley, for all she does getting Jupiter Farms straying pets back to their owners. We can never thank her enough for her dedication! She will be the Parade’s Honorary Grand Marshal, and of course, she’ll be awarded the Local Hero plaque about 4pm Sunday, December 4 at The Farms Market Place. Be sure to come and celebrate with her!
