After an AMAZING Parade, Who needs traffic?

The inside scoop on The Avenue at White Marsh Annual Holiday Parade...

With the Annual White Marsh Holiday Parade right around the corner this Saturday, the line-up has been finalized, the décor has been fluffed, and we’ve got our smiling faces on! Local government officials, high school marching bands, street performers, mascots, dance troops and much more have prepped all year to create a premier event, the only one of its kind in the Baltimore County area, for your entertainment. Whether you choose to fill your belly with breakfast sandwiches & hot chocolate from Della Rose’s Tavern or Red Brick Station, funnel cakes from ColdStone Creamery, pastries from Starbucks, or popcorn from AMC, be sure to grab that treat and stake out the best seat – along the entire Avenue!

Crowds not your thing? Can’t see everything? That’s ok! After the parade processes down The Avenue, it turns left at ULTA to loop around towards Honeygo Blvd. This side of The Avenue is full of empty viewing space waiting for your family!
And finally, the last thing we all feel like doing after a fun, enjoyable morning is sitting in pain-staking  traffic , so why not wait out the lines by getting some holiday shopping done?
