On Saturday December 2nd, Front Street will be the scene of many activities which will require at times road closures.  The Christmas Parade will begin at 11:00 AM.  However, in order to make the area safe for all, Front Street will be closed from Queen Street to King Street beginning at 10:00 AM.  The road will reopen at the conclusion of the parade.

In order to accommodate the tree lighting and concert by the Embers, a portion of Front Street will be closed beginning at 4:00 PM. This closure will consist of the intersection of Broad and Front Streets and will remain in place until approximately 8:00 PM.

In order to get the stage in place for the concert, Broad Street will be closed overnight on Friday December 1st near the intersection with Front Street. 

The day should be a great one for Georgetown, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
