Lighted parade and tree lighting is Friday

Don’t forget that the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s annual Holiday Happenings continues through this weekend. 

This year’s Lighted Parade will be held on Friday, Nov. 29 starting at 6 p.m. (Note the earlier time.)

The parade route will be the same as in past years starting on East South 6th Street by the St. John’s Lutheran School, heading north on South Main Street to the square where it will turn onto East Market Street towards city hall. 

Also new this year, the parade will end at Santa’s Village, located next to the city hall, where Santa will pull up with his team of Clydesdales to light the Community Christmas Tree.

(In case of inclement weather, the rain out date for the tree lighting ceremony is Saturday, Nov. 30. There is no scheduled rain out date for the lighted parade.)
