The Fruitland Chamber of Commerce 10th Annual Easter Parade on March 23, 2013 additional info

The Fruitland Chamber of Commerce is hosting their 10th Annual Easter
Parade on March 23, 2013. The parade time is at 10am. and the route of
the parade is from Fruitland Primary School on Division Street to the
Fruitland Little League Field off Brown Street in Fruitland. Line up
begins at 9am at the school. A $10.00 donation is required per entry to
participate, and all donations are used for our scholarship fund. This
parade started 10 years ago as a joint venture with Girl Scout Troop
1018. They needed a project to earn their silver award, so they asked
the Chamber about doing a parade for Fruitland, known as "Hop Into
Spring". So, we have come from 25 entries originally to almost 100.

This year's Master of Ceremonies will be Mr. Randy Lee Ashcraft, local
country musician. We will have over 90 participants in our parade,
which includes city and county council members, Wicomico County Sheriff,
Wicomico County State's Attorney, local churches, non-profit
organizations, dog clubs, girl scouts, boy scouts, PRMC Mobile Unit,
Library Book Mobile, UMES Band and their cheerleaders, mascots,
volunteer fire departments, local banks, youth pageant winners(Miss
Crustation/Little Mr. & Miss Skip Jack/Mr. Skip Jack), antique cars, hot
rods, horse and carriage, etc. We will also be offering "pictures with
the Easter Bunny" immediately after the parade for a $2.00 fee. All
proceeds from our event will go to the Fruitland Chamber's Scholarship
Fund helping a local student right here in Fruitland area.

Immediately following the parade, Fruitland City Hall and Fruitland
Recreation Commission will be sponsoring an Easter Egg Hunt with prizes
awarded and candy. Fruitland Little League Concession stand
will be open from 10am to noon and other vendors will be set up at the
Little League fields parking lot as well for a fun filled morning for all.
