The parade will travel from Essex Street to Vinnin Square, to Salem, Humphrey and Burrill streets, and back to Essex Street before finishing at the high school. Along the route, police officers will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys for the Toys for Local Children program, a community toy drive.
