You might feel like you’re still digesting the last of your Thanksgiving Dinner, but the holiday season festivities are only just beginning! This weekend, you can kick off a month of celebrations at the 7th annual Light up the Boulevard Electric Parade and Festival on Grand Island.
The festivities will begin this Saturday, December 1 at 12:00 pm.
Santa will be greeting children at Town Hall from 2:00 – 4:30 pm, and again from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Meanwhile, visitors can enjoy watching Holiday movies in the courtroom while they wait to meet Santa. Other festival activities include story time at the Grand Island Library, cookie decorating at Mamma De’s and more.
Following the Rudolf Run at 5:00 pm, attendees can enjoy the event’s main attraction—the Electric Parade and tree lighting ceremony in the town commons! This year, the event’s organizers will be providing a heated tent to keep everyone comfortable in the event of snow and cold weather. Once the parade is over, guests can stick around and continue to enjoy holiday-themed games, food trucks, Arctic golf and other activities in the town commons.
Light up the Boulevard offers a great opportunity for the folks in our area to get in the holiday spirit. This family-friendly event is especially fun for children, so be sure to bring the kids and grandkids along for the ride as well!
