BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: City of Boynton Beach) — Michael Byrd, a Boynton Beach resident serving as President for both the East Boynton Wildcats and Youth Enrichment Association for Academics & Athletics, has been selected as the Grand Marshal of the City of Boynton Beach’s 48th Annual Holiday Parade. Byrd will lead the parade, which will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1. at 4 p.m. in downtown Boynton Beach, along Federal Hwy. between SE 12th Ave. and NE 1st Ave.
Byrd was nominated by community members and selected by the Recreation and Parks Board to serve as Grand Marshal. In leading the East Boynton Wildcats, Byrd has grown and developed a volunteer force of over 100 individuals that assist with the football and cheerleading programs offered in the fall and spring for ages 4-14. In addition to sportsmanship, Byrd teaches responsibility, teamwork, dedication, and the importance of giving back to the community.
The 48th Annual Holiday Parade is one of the largest holiday parades in Palm Beach County. Every year, local school marching bands, drill teams, floats, and dance groups participate in this holiday tradition. Santa Claus will make a special appearance at the end of the parade.
Immediately following the parade, the Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) will Light Up the Park with festive lights, live music, light concessions and drinks, and a visit from Santa. This event will be held at Dewey Park located at the corner of Ocean Avenue and NE 4th Street. An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter will be present at both events.
