Fremont Christmas Stroll Friday Coming December 9th
Fremont comes alive with the Christmas spirit in this magical and enchanting evening that features a parade in which all the entries are illuminated with lights. Santa is the Master of Ceremonies, and awards for floats will be given. See the large Christmas inflatables: the Grinch, Snowman, Nutcracker and Santa, pulled by local car dealerships and the Fremont Cross Country Team. This event will make you remember what Christmas looks like through the eyes of a child!
Fremont Area Chamber invites you to join in on the fun of a nighttime parade on Friday, December 9th; festivities begin at 6:00 pm. What could be better than seeing Santa come to town riding on a beautifully lit horse drawn carriage? Each year a different theme challenges the community's creativity and ensures a wide variety of entries. This year our parade theme is “Home for the Holidays”. This year’s parade is sponsored by Gerber Life Insurance Company, Brant Electric and Gerber Federal Credit Union.
After the parade, bring your kids (young and old) to visit Santa at his house, located at the Veterans Memorial Park. Other activities taking place in the park include decorate your very own Christmas cookie with Huntington Bank, Kids Make and Take Crafts, sponsored by TS Graphics, Nieboer Electric and Gerber Life Insurance; Horse Drawn Carriage Rides with Percheron Horses; sponsored by Gerber Life Insurance and Nieboer Electric and food trucks including Two Hot Tamales, Couyon’s Cajun and Happy Camper Donuts.
