Mount Pleasant Magazine Nov/Dec 2023

26 | | People love parades. They bring community members together in the best kind of way. A celebration of the holidays spills onto businesses and organizations all over town, then spills into our hearts. It’s a togetherness filled with children’s laughter, pride for the town and excitement for what the future holds. There is also an incredible air of gratefulness for what we all collectively enjoy every day that puts the cherry on top—that and Santa Claus, of course! The cover of this issue features an image from a past parade. As we searched for the perfect photograph to put on the holiday issue, we all kept brainstorming what image could represent Mount Pleasant as a whole. We wanted something that could speak to every person, while also representing the season of giving and celebration. We think we landed in the perfect place. This is our parade. The 28th annual parade will be held Sunday, Dec. 10 at 5:30 p.m. this year. It will include brightly lit floats and fireworks. The nighttime spectacular is sure to draw a huge crowd as the sun goes down. However, this parade began as our town Here comes Santa Claus! This was the highlight of the day parade and is still a favorite attraction at the night parade. 642 Coleman Boulevard Mount Pleasant,SC 843.856.9277 | ®
