Annual Christmas parade, meal set downtown Saturday
This Saturday 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 parade will form in the MHS football field parking lot around 9:30 a.m. where entry forms will be available. The parade route will travel from the parking lot to downtown, ending at the Milano Civic Center.
Divisions for the parade are: best overall, small animals, small motorized/battery operated, vehicles/tractor, floats, bicycle/ walking and horses/wagons. Winners will be announced following the parade at the civic center where a free, traditional Christmas dinner will be served. Everyone is invited to stay for the meal.
On Saturday, Dec. 14 another family-friendly event will be held in the community. Christ- mas 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.
A big “thank you” to everyone who came out to the downtown Christmas display lighting on Saturday. The hayride, cookies and hot chocolate, along with sing-a-long was much enjoyed.
The MHS football team ended its historic run in the playoffs with a tough loss to Falls City on Friday. We are so proud of all the boys and their coaches. Now on to basketball season.
