Halifax hosts tree lighting, children’s Yule parade

SoVaNow.com / November 29, 2012
The Halifax Village Business Association presents its fourth annual Children’s Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony Friday, at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy the miniature Christmas Parade where all the participants are children and the floats are decorated wagons pulled by the children.

The theme this year is “Christmas Past, Present or Future.” Everyone will feel the excitement when the Christmas tree comes alive with sparkling lights. Music will drift over the celebration and visitors can feast on their favorite parade foods. And the most important part is Santa Claus will be there.

All participants will receive a Christmas ornament and certificate of participation. Judges will select a first, second and third place winner. Prizes will be a $50 savings account for first place, $40 savings account for second place and $30 savings account for third place winners. Parade applications are available at local Town of Halifax Businesses or by calling 434-476-2343.
