The 2012 Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival parade started with the loud blast of a locomotive slowly pulling itself down its tracks. Shortly after, the local police barricaded the roads from traffic and the first floats drifted into sight.
The parade begins in New Hope, Pennsylvania and crosses the Delaware River ending in Lambertville, New Jersey. Running about an hour in length, the parade features local marching bands, government officials and artisans.
One particular marching band stood out from the rest with their brightly colored costumes and silly dance moves…the Mummers!
Now in it’s 15th successful year, Winter Festival 2012 offers fun for people of all ages and is brought to you by the Twin Rivertown Projects Inc. A non-profit corporation run entirely by volunteers, the Twin Rivertown Project is made up of local business owners and residents. All money raised by the event is donated to the Parks and Recreation Departments of New Hope, Lambertville and Solebury and to Community Organizations like Schools, Police, Rescue and Social Service organizations.
