CROSBY/HIGHLANDS – Saturday, Santa comes to town locally in big, different ways and heralds the approach of many other thrilling seasonal events.
Light up the Night is a Christmas Lights Parade and Toy Drive by the Crosby-Huffman Chamber of Commerce to leave from the Middle School south on Main Street Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy for parade participation to be donated to Churches United in Caring for their Christmas outreach. Santa Claus will ride in on a fire truck and bring in seasonal cheer as the parade exits MainStreet for Miller-Wilson, pass before the Chamber Office left at Wahl Street. Businesses, groups and individuals should take advantage of this low buy-in display opportunity to market directly to their public in an attractive venue.
