Christmas has arrived In Pulaski County USA!

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”  I know it seems too soon to be Christmas already, but “the most wonderful time of the year” is upon us!  And guess what?!  “Santa Claus is coming to town” this weekend and we hope you have a “holly jolly Christmas” time at all of our wonderful Pulaski County USA events!  Ok, I’m done singing now 🙂

This weekend begins our Christmas Season in Pulaski County USA; November ends and Christmas beings!  December is filled with fun Christmas events for the entire family, and this is my attempt to consolidate all of the events in one place!  So grab your family, friends and Christmas Spirit and spread some Holiday Cheer this month!

Christmas Parades:
Laquey: The Buckhorn-Laquey Lions’ Club presents this year’s parade, “A Country Christmas” on Saturday, December 1st!  Floats will line up at the Horse Arena (Hwy AA & P) at 10am and the parade will begin around 11am!

Waynesville: If you love Christmas Stories, then you will love this year’s parade on Sunday, December 2nd!  The Waynesville-St. Robert Lions’ Club Parade, themed “Christmas Stories” will start at the Middle School, “float” down Route 66, through the Downtown Square and into the Waynesville City Park.  The fun begins at 2pm!

Dixon: Enjoy watching this beautiful parade of lights or be part of it!  Enter your dressed up doggie (under 15lbs) or decorated vehicles into the only night-time parade in the area by calling Brenda Bell 573-433-0954 for more information! The Parade is December 8th and will begin at the High School at 6pm (tentatively) and end at the Park!  Stay tuned after the parade for a Christmas in the Park with Santa, music and a plethora of lights!  The parade and Christmas in the Park are a combined effort of the Dixon Chamber of Commerce, the Dixon Lions Club and the City of Dixon as a thank you to their wonderful community!

Richland: “Let Freedom Ring with the Bells of Christmas” is the theme for Richland’s Christmas parade this year!  Don’t miss this patriotic holiday event on December 8th at 11am!  The parade will begin at Shady Dell Park and end at the corner of North Pine and East Camden at the Richland Hardware Store.  Gather the family and come on out!
