tractor parade brief 11-1

RURAL SPIRIT - A 2017 participant in the Parade of Lights, which blends holiday cheer with the area’s agricultural roots for a unique seasonal celebration.

Tree lighting and parade set for Nov. 24

The Geyserville Chamber of Commerce sponsors the local tradition of stringing lights on farm equipment for a parade through town.

Kids will get a chance to sit on Santa's lap and relay all their holiday wishes, while parents snap photos, followed by the ceremonial tree lighting and caroling.

The parade will begin at the north end of town and make one pass through the downtown area. The route is approximately 1.5 miles long, so there will be plenty of room to see the lights.

Those who get to town early will have the opportunity to enjoy shopping and special offers by local merchants, as well as something to eat and drink. Shops, tasting rooms and restaurants will be open. Food includes chili and corn bread at the Geyserville Firehouse or an unwrapped toy, hot dogs and beverages will be available at the Oddfellows Hall and hot chocolate and other snacks at various locations throughout the parade route.

If you would like to enter your truck or tractor in the parade contact geyservillechamber.com or ncproperties@comcast.net for an entries form.

The 9th annual Tree Lighting and Tractor Parade will take place on Nov. 24. Santa will be at the Park and Ride Plaza at 5 p.m.; tree lighting and caroling will take place at 6 p.m.; the parade will start at 6:30 p.m. The event is free to attend.
