Tree Lighting and Light Up ParadeTwo holiday favorites have been combined into one this year! First, gather on Block 59 for the Tree Lighting, complete with performances by the PTHS Madrigal Singers, the unveiling of a new light up sculpture created by the LACC welding class, and of course, the lighting of our giant tree! Then turn your attention to the Light Up Parade as it follows its tradition route over the Mill Street Bridge, east on Washington, north on Chicago, and west on Madison to County Market. Santa will return to his house on Madison Street after the parade to greet all the children waiting for him. Interested in having a float in the parade? Click here for the entry form.
