Jeannie Borgia-Wolcott, the organizer of the Forestport Light Up Parade, joins us for Newstalk to tell us about the event coming up this Sunday, December 15th, at 4:30pm.
You can become a Light Up Parade participant by registering, either as an individual or as a group .
You can do so in the parking area across from St. Patrick’s Church on River Road in Forestport.
Everyone in the parade is asked to carry some type of lighting to illuminate the evening.
You can may bring lighted and decorated wagons, strollers, wheelbarrows and carriages, as long as they are not motorized.
The parade ultimately leads to Memorial Park on Woodhull Street where people can see Santa before the ceremonial lighting of the community Christmas tree.
You can take part in Christmas carols and warm refreshments will be provided.
Children can meet Santa and receive their presents at the Forestport Presbyterian Fellowship Hall.
