Parade News & Updates

Our 32nd Annual Southern Maine Christmas parade will take place on Sunday, December 10th, 2017 at 2 pm. Our theme is “Christmas Fun for Everyone.”  It is FREE to participate in the parade!  We are looking forward to viewing your creative ideas!!  Santa Claus will in the parade again, of course. His reindeer will be back at the North Pole helping the elves and Mrs. Claus prepare for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Grand Marshal for 2017 Parade: The Grand Marshal this year is June (Hilton) Messier, a well-known figure in Wells. As a young girl, June summered in Wells with her grandparents and at the age of 14 remained in Wells attending Wells High School, graduating in 1948. June married Roger Messier in 1952. They have 2 children, 2 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. June’s volunteer efforts in Wells are legendary. She served on the school board for 8 years, was an officer in the Wells Grange for more than 25 years, board member for the Historical Society of Wells and Ogunquit, served on the Wells 350th Celebration steering committee, was one of the earliest members of the Senior Needs Committee of Wells and Ogunquit where she became (and still is) the Treasurer and worked tirelessly on efforts to raise funds to build the Wells and Ogunquit Center at Moody (Senior Center) and is the committee chair for the Wells Summer Concert Series at Harbor Park. June received a Governor’s Award for Service and Volunteerism at a State House ceremony in April of 2013. We’re delighted that she has agreed to be the Grand Marshal.
