Parade of lights planned for Nov. 28
Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit the Holton Town Square on Friday, Nov. 28, the day after Thanksgiving, and will participate in the annual Christmas Parade of Lights around the Square set for 5:30 p.m.
Holton’s impressive Town Square Christmas Lights that outline the Town Square buildings will also be turned on at 5:30 p.m. that day, heralding the holiday season.
After the Christmas Parade of Lights, Santa and Mrs. Claus will meet with children and their parents at the Jackson County Courthouse Lobby where photographer Kiersten Luthi will take photos of Santa and Mrs. Claus with the kids.
In the Christmas Parade of Lights, participants light up vehicles, floats, farm machinery and other methods of transportation with holiday lights.
All area churches, clubs and schools are invited to participate in the Parade of Lights. It is hoped that our Christmas Parade of Lights could grow into a regional attraction for the community. All area police, sheriff, fire and safety departments are invited to participate in the parade as are all area businesses and professional people. Elected officials are also invited to join in the fun.
Cash prizes will be awarded for Best Religious Float, Best Business Float or Entry, Best Club or Organization Float and Brightest Entry.
