Crocker will hold its annual lighted Christmas parade Saturday evening

While Dixon will be having its Hometown Christmas activities tomorrow afternoon and evening from 1 to 7 o’clock, Crocker will be having its annual lighted Christmas parade Saturday evening. All festivities will take place in the middle of town across from City Hall. Crocker Mayor Glen Smith will start the festivities by lighting the Christmas lights on the decorated Train Caboose. The parade will line up in the school parking lot at 5 o’clock and begin at 5:30, traveling from the school to Eleventh Street.
Following the parade, individuals can have their pictures taken with Mr. and Mrs. Claus inside the Ad Tracker Building. Pictures will be provided by “Picture Perfect Planning.” Free food and drinks will be handed out by local businesses, companies, and organizations. Free carriage rides will be available.
And a free coat distribution will be available as long as coats last. Crocker City Hall will be holding an open house so that the community can view all of the new updates there. From 5 to 6:45 Saturday evening, young people ages 2 through 18 can stop inside city hall and enter their name for a chance to win a bike. Three bikes will be given away–two with training wheels and one will be a full-sized bike. Winners will be announced at 6:45 p.m. outside City Hall. One entry per person and a person has to be present to win. From 3 to 7 p-m Saturday, Christmas at the Frisco Depot will be taking place. The historic depot will be especially open with museum displays representing the Frisco Railroad in Pulaski County, and holiday sweets to share.
