The Christmas Spirit keeps churning through our newly wintry climes this weekend with some serious seasonal celebrating on tap.
Tonight (Friday) is the Illuminated Holiday Parade in Fremont starting at 6pm. As parades go this is a very cool one and not just because of the weather. The Disney folks get it. if you’ve ever been to one of their utopian parks and witnessed an evening march you know how the evening air adds a sprinkle of magic to the event. Of course in Florida and California the evening air is generally a bit less, uh, present, I guess.
It’s a fun one and as I said before Fremont really knows how to put on a parade and this one is no exception.
Check out the live Nativity Scene being staged by Fremont Wesleyan Church from 5-7:30pm at the parking lot by Liberty Jewelers near the park.
And, oh yeah, the park. The Man Himself, the Holiday Elf, the sleigh in the sky kind of Christmas Guy….yes I’m talking Santa Claus who will once again take time off his busy schedule to greet folks at the park until about 8:30pm when he’ll be heading back North.
Saturday from Noon to 4pm head to our gateway city Grant for a little more sprinkling of seasonal fun. The Community Center will be the hub of activity with Mr. Claus returning to make another appearance but this time he will be chapero… I mean... accompanied by, Mrs. Claus.
Lots of family fun featured here so bring the kids and spend the afternoon in a seasonal setting g bound to bring out some smiles.
My short-lived stint in choir ended in 4th grade during rehearsals for our Christmas pageant when it was suggested I might benefit the group more by practicing the art of lip syncing during the concert.
It was then I felt destined for more of a solo career.
Nevertheless, Sunday at 6pm long after the Lions are done (some say they are already done) the Grant Fine Arts Center will be hosting one of the premier get in the spirit and come away with a good feeling events of the season.
The newly named but long in existence River Country Community Choir will be tossing out their annual Christmas Concert, always a really fine way to spend a Sunday evening during the holidays.
And there are still t tickets for the Roger Day Christmas Show at the Dogwood’s Black Box tonight (Friday) at 7:30pm. This is a seasonal romp the whole family will dig and is a bargain at just 15 bucks for adults and 5 smackers(a mere fin) for 18 and under.
It’s time to revel folks.
