Harrison’s annual Christmas parade and tree lighting was held on Saturday evening, Dec.1. The feedback I have received has been positive and that most people thought it was a great event.
To all the parade entries, the floats were were amazing and all of your hard work was apparent. To the people who lined the streets to watch the parade, thanks for coming out and supporting our event!
I hope that our Christmas parade and tree lighting was as fun and exciting for you as if was to me, and that next year’s Christmas parade and tree lighting to be bigger and better for our community.
