As the wind up starts to whip through the trees and temperatures begin to drop, we are reminded that colder days are ahead and with that comes the holiday season. What better way to gear up for the holidays and get in a jolly mood than to be part of an extraordinary event happening in the area...the Longaberger Homestead holiday tree lighting ceremony and parade. It is a great event for the entire family to be involved in. Each year's parade has new things in it, new characters, new floats and new lights along with some of the old favorites. The tree lighting event is set to kick off on the Friday at 5:30 P.M at the Homestead.
