The WLOY team had a joyful time performing as Peanuts characters and giving out 3,000 candy canes for the Mayors Annual Christmas Parade on Sunday, December 4. The WLOY van was converted into Snoopy’s doghouse adorned with Christmas lights and snow. WLOY’s awesome business manager, Eddie Fine, performed as DJ Snoopy atop the WLOY van with a mic and festive moves to vibe and interact with the incredibly enthusiastic crowd. Production Manager, Ben Ostrowski, was Charlie Brown. Events Manager, Ronnie Gruseck, was Lucy. General Manager, Anna Markulis, was Schroeder complete with the iconic mini piano. Music Director, Aliyah Smith-Bradley, and Justin Guarnieri from the events team handed out candy canes as Linus (you can never enough Linus). PR and Graphics Director, Hope Johnson, was Marcie. Analia Cortez of the music department was Pigpen and Daniel Carter of the music department was Shermy.

We always enjoy blasting the Merry Christmas Charlie Brown soundtrack and other holiday classics throughout the Hampden and Medfield neighborhoods. Parade spectators of all ages enjoyed the candy canes. It’s one of our favorite community events of the year (our 10th!) and we hope to catch you at the next years 50th Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade!
