Holiday Happenings is this weekend

Lighted parade is Friday at 8 p.m.

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than with the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Holiday Happenings, which is scheduled to take place this weekend on Friday, Nov. 16 and Saturday, Nov. 17.

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.

Serving as the grand marshal of this year’s parade is this year’s Red Bud Citizen of Achievement, Steve Kueker. Also, be sure to watch for Santa in the parade, accompanied by Little Miss and Mister Red Bud, Ava Deterding and Mason Mehring.
