Some of my favorite memories from childhood surround the times my family and I would all bundle up and stand along the street to watch the annual holiday parade with Santa closing the parade and ushering in the holiday season.

If you're looking for a way to make new memories with your kids, you might want to check out the 2013 Downtown Holiday Parade this Saturday.

The Downtown Holiday Parade is sponsored by Boscov's, the City of Binghamton and the Press & Sun Bulletin and kicks off this Saturday, November 23rd at 1:30pm on Main Street in downtown Binghamton.

The theme this year is “The Joy of Sharing with Friends & Family Through the Holidays”  which seems extra fitting if you're planning to make new memories, doesn't it?  Oh, and the parade also will include the annual visit by Santa plus the Hawk staff, so when you see us, be sure to wave hello, okay?
