2014 Safety Harbor Holiday Parade: What You Need To Know
The final Safety Harbor special event of 2014 is here, and like all of the other big events this year, it promises to be a very memorable one.
The 34th annual Safety Harbor Holiday Parade will begin its procession down Main Street at 1:00 pm, and with nearly 100 entries, Santa should be pulling up the rear of the parade roughly two hours later.
In between, the thousands of patrons that pack the downtown district will be treated to a spectacle of sights and sounds that include fire trucks and hot rods, Shriners and Boy Scouts, plus a very special replacement for the iconic Mrs. Claus.
But with all that pomp and pageantry comes, well, traffic concerns.
Be forewarned, there will be many road closures and parking restrictions in town today, so plan your trip accordingly.
