Our opinion: More to come

Didn’t get enough Christmas spirit last Friday evening in Warren?

Of course not; there’s no such thing as enough Christmas spirit.

Well, there are two opportunities for you to keep that old holiday feeling running full-tilt this Friday in Sugar Grove and Youngsville.

It’s the fifth year for Sugar Grove’s old-fashioned Christmas celebration, complete with hay rides, living window displays, refreshments and music.

Youngsville’s Christmas parade will kick things off at 6 p.m. From 6:30 to 8 p.m. there will lots of great events to enjoy and food vendors to visit while folks stroll around town. The entire area from the bridge toward the “Y” will be the North Pole and will be marked by two giant candy canes. At the North Pole there will be food vendors, “Reindeer Games,” funny holiday photo banners, holiday face painting tattoos,

There will even be a mini-train that children can ride on in Sugar Grove, along with a public campfire for roasting marshmallows.

Mrs. Claus, Santa’s ever-enduring better half, will be on hand to tell a story or two at the Sugar Grove Library.

Sugar Grove and Youngsville are tight-knit communities that open their doors and streets to visitors looking for traditional fun.

Santa will be shuttling between the two towns just to make sure he meets as many children as possible.

Sure, it’s going to be cold, but a warm Christmas celebration is no fun at all.
