The Milano school and city are teaming up for a fun holiday season full of activities in our little town. There are three upcoming events planned to bring everyone together and into the Christmas mood.

On Saturday, Nov. 30 there will be a lighting ceremony held downtown at the Bailey Bank Building. That will get underway at 6 p.m., followed by hay rides ending at the First Baptist Church fellowship hall. Cookies, punch and hot chocolate will also be available at the church.

The next Saturday, Dec. 7, is the annual Milano Christmas parade. Start time is 10:30 a.m. Following the parade, the free community Christmas meal will be served at the Civic Center.

The final planned event will be held Saturday, Dec. 14. Christmas decorations around town will be judged in the city’s annual contest. This year hayrides and Christmas caroling will begin, along with the judging at 6 p.m. at the civic center. At 7 p.m. a community Christmas sing-a-long will be held, also at the civic center.

What great new traditions to start in our great little town.
