Annual celebration coming to town earlier this year

PROPHETSTOWN – The Prophetstown Main Street organization is seeking entries for its 28th annual lighted Christmas parade. The lighted parade will be held at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 30.

With a new date and time, the parade committee is hoping to give Thanksgiving holiday visitors the chance to participate or experience the parade.

Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories, including large and small floats, tractors, cars, horses and walking. 

Events leading up to the parade include a visit with Santa from 2 to 4 p.m. at the fire station, 210 Washington St., along with a chili supper sponsored by the Prophetstown Masonic Lodge that begins at 4:30 p.m. 

Also, the lighting of the Love Light Tree takes place at 5:30 p.m. in Eclipse Square. 

Local businesses will have extended hours for holiday shopping, and strolling musicians and goodies will be available on Main Street prior to the parade. 

Special guest judges for the parade this year are meteorologists Eric Maitland and Greg Dutra and reporter Amber O’Brien from KWQC TV 6. The trio will be available at a meet-and-greet session beginning at 6 p.m.
