Christmas is just around the corner and community members are invited to participate in the first “Light up the Village with Christmas Spirit” nighttime parade on Dec. 4 from 5:30 – 8:00 pm.

The theme was inspired with the desire to bring the true spirit of Christmas to our parade and the Christmas in the Village celebration. The event, sponsored by the Mount Gilead Interchurch Council, will begin at 5:30 pm and will include a live nativity scene, Christmas Carolers, crafts, lighting of the community Christmas trees, and visits with Santa.

The countywide Christmas parade, organized by Century 21 Bob McElroy Realty, will begin at 6 pm. Entries for the parade are now being accepted by calling 419-947-9540 or the Morrow County Chamber office at 419-946-2821. There is no entry charge for the parade and may include commercial and non-commercial entries.

We hope you’ll get involved with us and make this the best Christmas event for Morrow County families.
