Christmas parade, lighting Saturday

Santa Clause is coming to town at 7 p.m. Saturday during the Lighted Candy Christmas Parade escorted in by the Iowa Park Volunteer Fire Department.
The parade benefits the IPVFD’s Kidz Christmas program.
It’s not too late to enter the parade and donate to the Kidz Christmas program.
Entries will be accepted until Saturday. There is no charge to participate in the parade, but donations and new toys for the fire department’s Kidz Christmas program will be accepted.
For more information or to sign up for the parade contact Lewis Skinner at 940-867-9655 or Tristin Dozier at 940-733-0140.
The parade will line-up on East Cash in the area of Dutton Funeral Home and travel west on Cash Street to North Yosemite, turn north on Yosemite, east on Park Street, make a u-turn and travel back west on Park Street to Pacific Street where it will head north to the Tom Burnett Memorial Library.
Parade participants are asked not to throw candy during the parade for the safety of the children along the parade route.
Santa and Library Lighting
Following the Iowa Park Volunteer Fire Department’s Lighted Christmas Parade the Light Up Christmas ceremony will be held at Tom Burnett Memorial Library.
After Santa flips the lights on for the displays on the library grounds he will be available to visit with children.
The library staff will serve refreshments.
Kidz Christmas Fundraisers
Also, starting at 8 a.m. Saturday Iowa Park Volunteer Firefighters will be collecting donations for the Kidz Christmas program at the intersections of Yosemite and West Highway and Johnson Road and West Highway.
Containers have also been placed at several local businesses where donations can be made.
