Annual Christmas “Light Up” Parade on December 10, 2023
At 4:30 PM the Annual Light Up Parade participants will line-up and register as an Individual or as a GROUP in the Parking Area across from St. Patrick’s Church.
Everyone in the “Light Up’ Parade is asked to carry some type of lighting. You can bring lighted and decorated wagons, strollers, wheelbarrows and carriages – your imagination is the only limit. Motorized vehicles are permitted.
The Parade will proceed through the streets and everyone will assemble in the Memorial Park on Woodhull Road for the arrival of Santa right before the Lighting of the Community Christmas Tree by Town Supervisor TJ Entwistle. There will also be singing of Christmas Carols led by Donna Mucks and Amy Boulrice.
The Llamas – all lighted up- from Anne Phinney’s Moose River Farm will again march in our parade for their third year – weather permitting of course. And again this year, South Trenton Carriage Company will enter the Parade compliments of community donations with special mention of the Kayuta Lake Improvement Association who also will enter a float in this parade. The South Trenton wagon will be pulled by a pair of Clydesdale horses and will provide rides during the visits before and after with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
The Children will then proceed to the in the Forestport Fire Department to meet Santa and receive their special presents compliments of the Wigwam’s Annual Community Toy Drive and new this year – a book from the Forestport Book Club.
This unique parade is sponsored by the Forestport Fire Department, St. Patrick’s Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Senior Recreation Program, Go With the Flow and Snow Kayakers and Cross Country Skiers, the O’Meara family, Daryl and Missy Parsons, Mary Healt, Jim and Joan Snook, Dave Belliveau, WILCOR INTERNATIONAL and the Corrigan Family, the Hagg’s, the Forestport Book Club, Woodgate Volunteer Fire Department, Kayuta Lake Improvement Association, the Wigwam, Scooter’s, the Forestport Diner, Alder Creek Beverages, Trackside Blazers Snowmobile Club and the Town of Forestport.
