Fairfield Harbour Loves a Parade

Margaret Rose, President of Neuse Realty, commented: “there are many roles for the FHCBC to play, and I am pleased that the council was able to step up to assist with this tradition”.

With winds gusting to 18 knots and a deep chill in the air, the Fairfield Harbour Parade marched on. The 18th annual Fairfield Harbour Parade had 26 entries on December 7, including the USMC Color Guard, the West Craven High School Marching Band and the Grand Marshall – Phyllis Wiltrout.


The floats were colorful, buoyant and original; each reflected the care, love, energy that went into creating them.  Participating in and attending the FH Parade is a much loved tradition in Fairfield. The parade route ran down Pelican to cheers of residents and children scrambling for candy tossed from floats. The parade culminated at Red Sail Park for Fairfield comradery, food, desserts, music and children activities. Red Sail Park was festively decorated by our own CAS Maintenance Staff. Several Santas made their appearance at Red Sail.

Larry Knapp, POA president and Mystre Van Horn, community manager emceed the parade while Channel 10 taped the event. The footage will air starting the weekend of December 12 on Channel 10.

Thank you to all who participated and to the volunteers who donated food, time and energy. Without the Fairfield touch, it would not be the success it was. A special thanks to the FFH Parade Committee and all their helpers.

The FH parade is a Cooperative Business Council of Fairfield Harbour sponsored event.
