Salisbury Jaycees host the 70th Annual Christmas Parade

The Salisbury Jaycees hosted their 70th annual Christmas Parade.

Plenty of people lined up along the streets as there were more than 100 entries.

This includes fire trucks, girl scouts, and other local organizations. Judges were on the sideline, as the entries walked on by.

One of the trophy categories included best marching band. With Mardela Middle and High School going for that title.

The instructor, Cory Boltz, has been leading the team for 18 years.

He tells 47 ABC the band has been practicing since October.

We are told their biggest motivation while performing in the parade  is getting positive feedback from the crowd.

Boltz says the audience does boost the morale and the performance of the band. He says he focuses on the audience when he chooses the music while putting the routines together.

Boltz says it’s nice to hear positive feedback from the judges but the parade is mostly based on the audience and the band tries to focus on them for support.
