Holiday Happenings begins November 17

It will be here before you know it Рthe Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Holiday Happenings is scheduled to take place this year Friday, Nov. 17 through Sunday, Nov. 19.

Holiday Happenings will kick off this year with the return of the Lighted Parade on Friday night.

The parade will start at 8 p.m. and will proceed down South Main Street.

The parade line up will start at 6 p.m. behind the NAPA Auto Parts store. Those wishing to enter a float will need to have at least 200 consecutive lights and no Santa on the float.

The lighted parade is a great opportunity for area businesses to again show off their Red Bud 150 cakes.

Be sure to watch for Santa to be in the parade, accompanied by Little Miss and Mister Red Bud.

To enter or for more information about the parade, contact any of the chamber directors or email info@redbudchamber.com.

Also Friday night is the annual Run, Rudolph, Run 5K. The race will start prior to the lighted parade at 6 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Catholic School.
