Brrr.....we've gotten a bit of a cold spell in the past week. The Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Christmas Parade of Lights will be here before we know it, so the time to plan is now! The theme this year is ‘It’s Beginning to look a lot like A Nevada Christmas.‘
The Parade of Lights will take place on Saturday, December 10th at 5:30 p.m. The parade will flow from Spare Time Bowl area down Bridge Street to the Winnemucca Hotel area. Line up is at 4:30pm.
Civic groups, clubs, businesses and individuals are welcome to join the Parade of Lights. Each entry must be lit and be able to fit on the city street, but otherwise there are no restrictions. The Winner receives a $100 Chamber Check Gift Certificate, 2nd prize is a $50 Chamber Check.
We want to encourage everyone to please take part in this “fun for the whole community” event. The entries in the Parade of Lights have grown slightly every year and it is our hope to have that trend continue.
Immediately after the parade, spectators and participants alike are invited to the Nixon Lawn were Mayor Di An Putnam will be officially lighting the Memorial Tree (sponsored by Humboldt Volunteer Hospice). There will be Hot chocolate and caroling. Santa will be walking about and mingling with the crowd. Plan to attend and bring your camera along.
