“Planning has already begun,” says Kevin Thompson, Director of Operations for the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce. “This year is the parade’s “golden” anniversary and we want to make it our biggest and best yet! We’re excited to see all the floats, decorations, and costumes that our participants will create to celebrate this special milestone.”

Georgetown has a long history spanning back to 1791 when the county seat moved there from Lewes, which was criticized for being too far from western Delaware. Originally, Georgetown was laid out in a large square, but that was quickly changed to the circle we all associate with Georgetown with the historic Georgetown Circle at the center.
