NORWICH — The 20th annual Parade of Lights was a huge success this year, and according to event organizer Michael McCormack, it was one of the best turnouts on record.
Some 64 parading floats braved Saturday evening’s chilly temperature to watch the hour and ten minute spectacle.
“This was the smoothest holiday parade of my tenure as the parade organizer,” said McCormack. “Everything was spectacular this year, I've never heard so many compliments about the quality of the floats — everyone did a great job this year.”
According to McCormack, North and South Broad streets were lined three deep on both sides. “Norwich Police said they thought it was the biggest crowd ever,” McCormack said. “We ended the parade with entertainment from Kaitlyn and John Jackson.
