The annual kickoff to the holiday season begins in a festive way in Crawford the day after Thanksgiving.
The Parade of Lights is a magical evening with carolers, pets and people all lit up and traveling through town.
The parade starts at 6 p.m., this Friday, Nov. 23.
One of the highlights is Santa's arrival with his huge bag of toys. All good boys and girls need to go to the Crawford Community United Methodist Church to meet Santa and his elves.
Bring your holiday gift list and start your shopping early at the Craft Fair in Crawford Town Hall and the United Methodist Church beginning on Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and again on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
There will be special homemade crafts from local artisans and cookies by the pound from the area's best bakers available.
The United Methodist Church will be serving chili and nachos from 5-7 p.m. The Black Mesa Cattlewomen will be serving all you can eat soup at town hall from 4-7 p.m.
After the parade the North Rim Glass Studio will have glass blowing demonstrations and refreshments.
Everyone is invited.
