With Thanksgiving leftovers leaving the fridge, Christmas season is in full swing. Cedaredge will start the holiday cheer with its annual Parade of Lights Dec. 1 at 6 p.m.
This year's sponsor is again U.S. Bank and the theme is "Christmas in Candyland." A Judge's Choice award will be awarded immediately following the parade for the float best showcasing this theme.
Last year's parade saw one of the largest crowds in years and hopefully more will gather this Saturday. With any luck the forecast for snow will hold out and complete the evening.
Sign-up deadline to be in the parade is Thursday, Nov. 29, at 5 p.m.
The parade's route will begin at Main Street from Highway 65 and then along the highway until SW 2nd Street. Afterwards, Santa will stop by the chamber on Main Street to hand out treats.
The evening will be chilly, so stop by town hall to enjoy cookies and hot apple cider from town officials. Downtown businesses will be also open for shopping.
On Dec. 2, officers of the Delta Police Department responded to a report of an assault. Officers spoke with a 64-year-old male with a bleeding injury on his neck.
