Parade of Light History

(Havre) – On Friday November 24th Chinook will be hosting the Parade of Lights and the Wreath Festival along with several other events. Laine Jergesen the Media Liaison for the Chinook Chamber of Commerce talks about how old the Parade of Lights is.

“So, the parade of lights has been going on since I was a kid at least, so 40 plus years. So, it’s been going on for a very long time and it’s always been the Friday after Thanksgiving, and I have some great memories of some really neat floats and it’s a really great time for the community to come out maybe do a little Christmas shopping and just enjoy family that’s in town and enjoy the beautiful lights.”
