December 8th: Wayland Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Christmas Parade – The parade will begin at 11:00am at the Wayland VFW Post 7581 located at 735 S Main Street. The parade will proceed North on Main, then go West on Superior. The parade will conclude at the Wayland Fire Station, 160 W Superior. Visits with Santa will take place after the parade. Please bring a camera for pictures with Santa. This year, the parade theme is “Christmas Melodies” which allows those entering the parade to decorate according to a Christmas song. Cash prizes are awarded for the top three participants who decorate according to the theme. Please note that the Wayland Area Chamber of Commerce provides Santa Claus for the parade so it is requested that all other parade entries do not use another Santa in their displays. This will avoid potential confusion for the children. City Police Parade Rules are as follows:
