It's time to get ready for the Brookings Christmas Parade and Holiday-Festival of Lights. The 8th Annual Brookings Christmas Parade will be held Dec. 11 at 5:30 pm.
“Anything goes, just light it up and join the fun,” said Kathy Breshears, the organizer of the event.
Those wishing to participate by decorating their cars, trucks or even tractors should meet by 4:30 pm at Brookings Presbyterian Çhurch, located at 540 Pacific Avenue, across from Azalea Middle School.
The parade will travel from the church to Oak Street, Railroad Street, to 5th Street, and then to Easy Street until getting back to the church.
About 30 participants are expected to be in the parade, with roughly 200 onlookers watching the festivities from the street.
Due to COVID-19, post-parade festivities have been cancelled.
However, Nature’s Coastal Holiday-Festival of Lights, which opens this Friday (Nov. 26) includes a 45-minute stroll through hundreds of light displays at Azalea Park at 640 Old Country Road.
The festival of lights runs through Dec. 26, from 5pm to 9pm. The cost is $3 for adults and kids 12 and under get in for free.
Safe Santa visits at the park will be held Nov. 26-27 and Dec. 3-4, 17-18 and 23-24 from 6pm-8pm.
