Even though the month still says October, Ship Bottom says it is time for people to begin working on their float for the borough’s Christmas Parade scheduled Saturday, Dec. 5, 1 p.m. This year’s theme is “Fishing You a Merry Christmas.”

“We really want to encourage businesses, organizations and families to design and build their homemade floats,” said Kathleen Wells, borough clerk. “Let’s make this one of the best parades we’ve ever had.”

She said while there is no fee for having a float or participating in the parade, people need to register.

The procession steps off from the Ethel Jacobsen School at Fifth Street and Barnegat Avenue. The parade route runs through Long Beach Boulevard in Ship Bottom to 25th Street. Parade line-up time is 10:30 a.m. for floats and 11:30 for all other participants. The viewing stand will be located in front of the borough hall at 16th Street and Long Beach Boulevard.

Various sponsorships are available, with the top one being a gold sponsorship for $1,000, which will help pay for the bands in the parade. Other sponsorships include a $600 silver, a $300 bronze and a $100 Christmas angel.

Wells said the borough will also sell special summer concert T-shirts for $10, as well as gift certificates and holiday beach badges.
