White Christmas in the Village details — redux

6 Dec

OK folks, I recently heard some exciting news about Saturday evening’s Electric Parade during the village’s White Christmas in the Village festival.

It’s going to be the biggest ever.

I’m told that there will be no fewer than 30 firefighter and emergency units participating, from as many as ten different agencies from near and far. And every single one of these units will be covered in twinkly Christmas lights.

Basically it’s going to be a sight to behold.

The parade will cap an entire afternoon of family-friendly activities beginning at 3 p.m. It’s one of my favorite village events of the entire year and a don’t-miss festival for the whole family. If you do come to the parade, however, make sure to wear something warm and bring mug of hot chocolate or coffee to help, because it’s a long parade. (There won’t be any fireworks after the parade this year, though.)

And don’t worry about getting a seat; there will be plenty of viewing spots.

Here again are the details:

3 to 5:45 p.m. — Horse-drawn wagon rides through the village
3 to 6 p.m. — Bounce House on Main Street
3:30 to 5:45 p.m. — Santa Claus at the Village Hall
4 p.m. — Storytelling at Yesterday’s Muse Book Store
4 p.m. — Cookie decorating at Rubino’s
5 p.m. — Church of the Good Shepherd Chime Bell Choir on Main Street

And don’t forget to stop by the Webster Museum that afternoon as well to check out — and vote for — some beautiful miniature Christmas trees.

This is also a great chance to visit some of our village’s newest businesses, including Chandelier’s Boutique, LaLa, The North Bee, the Pickled Paintbrush, and The Village Quilt Shop. (I hope I’m not forgetting anyone, and I hope they’re all open for browsing!) Many of the business owners will be participating in a gingerbread house contest, so make sure to stop by and vote for your favorite!

By the way, don’t forget to start out that morning with a hot breakfast, served up by the Chorus of the Genesee.

The Chorus will be hosting their fourth annual Breakfast with Santa, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Harmony House, 58 East Main Street in Webster.

Breakfast will be cooked and served, music will be provided by the Chorus of the Genesee, and of course, Santa will be there! Tickets are just $5 each, with a maximum of $20 per family (including two adults). Pictures with Santa will be available.
