Newark's Winterfest to kick off Christmas season Friday

The Lebanon Christmas parade will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. with the theme of "Christmas Movies Come to Life".

The parade starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday and will be followed by a tree lighting ceremony and band performance. Affected roads will include parts of West Main Street, Robins Street, Jefferson Street, North Front Street, North Spring Street, North Broadway Street, North Green Street, North Church Street and North Madison Street.

They've done the trolley rides for several years, said Michael Sothan, Main Street Beatrice executive director.

The night before the parade, the Vikings will be introduced at the the community tree lighting event in Solvang Park starting at 5 p.m. Friday, and will flip the switch to light the 20-foot LED "drought-tolerant" Julefest tree.

The parade route begins at the Science Museum of Virginia on West Broad Street and continues east to 7th Street

Now in its 37th year, the parade marches through Midtown Atlanta. The Eagles Auxiliary will be handing out hot chocolate and cookies and there will be a kettle corn vendor on hand as well. "I don't know if we'll have live carolers, but we'll have some music going on in the alley, whether it's over the speaker system". "It's honestly a great time to do some holiday shopping that day".

The parade route is shorter than the annual Homestead Days parade, but that doesn't mean it won't be just as crowded. "She wants to make sure that anybody who wants to do that could do it", she said.
