Applications for the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Parade of Lights are available at the chamber office, 3rd and Main, or online at www.deltacolorado.org. The registration deadline is Nov. 22. Volunteers of America is sponsoring the event, so there is no charge for entries.
The year's parade, "A Kick-off to Christmas," is Saturday, Nov. 26, beginning at 6 p.m. The parade will run from 9th to 2nd on Main Street.
Throughout the day, Delta merchants will be offering sales, door prizes and more in celebration of Small Business Saturday. Abraham Connection is hosting a macaroni and cheese cookoff to benefit the homeless shelter. Music, carolers, pictures with Santa, kids' scavenger hunt, kids' crafts and a tree-lighting ceremony are also being planned. For more information, contact the chamber at 874-8616.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
