CRISFIELD, Md. – City officials say the Crab Derby Parade is not just getting a new route.
According to the Chamber of Commerce President Buddy Ward the parade, which takes place on Aug. 31, will be expanding.
The parade will include more local bands as well as performances by Wicked Tuna and students from local schools.
On top of that, the parade will add new floats while bringing back antique cars and more.
It is something Ward who is also Crab Derby Committee Chair says people enjoy looking forward to.
“Like everything else that goes with crab derby, it’s a heritage event, a cornerstone event,” said Ward.
“It is a tradition and we always love tradition, and I mean who doesn’t like a parade, the fire truck and all the bells and whistles that go with all of that,” said Ward.
The President of the Chamber of Commerce adds he is asking more people to volunteer at the parade on Aug. 31 to help make it a success.
