Roger Moss and the Savannah Children’s Choir are set to make an appearance with Santa this year as the Grand Marshals of the Savannah Waterfront Association’s Lighted Christmas Parade.
"Roger Moss is an accomplished performer and community leader and is also the co-founder and Director of Development for the
Savannah Children’s Choir," says Leigh Anne DiVito, public relations manager for the Savannah Waterfront Association.
"The choral organization is a community supported non-profit whose mission is to unite, mentor and transform Savannah’s children into responsible, creative, and confident leaders through excellence in choral performance and music education," DiVito adds.
“Each year the Savannah Waterfront staff and Board of Directors selects a community leader or group to serve as our grand marshal for our Lighted Christmas Parade. Since this marks the 10th anniversary of the Savannah Children’s Choir, we couldn’t think of a better or more festive group than this to kick off the holidays and parade with,” says Carrie Bligh, Executive Director for the Savannah Waterfront Association.
“I am, along with the children of the Savannah Children's Choir, are thrilled to be Grand Marshals this year,” says Moss. “For 10 years the Savannah Children's Choir has represented Savannah regionally, nationally and internationally garnering praise and awards."
The annual Lighted Christmas Parade is part of the Savannah Waterfront Association’s Christmas on the River festival which features a full schedule of local performances and arts and crafts vendors throughout the weekend.
The holiday celebration will kick off on Friday, December 4th from 4-10pm with First Friday Fireworks presented by Wet Willies at 9:30pm. The festivities will continue on Saturday December 5th from 10am-8pm with the annual parade starting at 5:30pm.
The lighted parade will begin on the west end of River Street and travel throughout downtown, ending in City Market.
This year’s parade will have over 40 community groups and businesses with multiple units of decorated cars, trucks, floats, and trolleys. Even the walking groups are wrapped in Christmas lights.
