Each year at this time, Granville is overtaken with holiday cheer. Its village streets, parks, bridges and light posts are decorated with garland lights and more, transforming the village into a winter wonderland.
The holiday fun kicks off on the First Friday in December each year. This year’s event, on Dec. 7, will feature the annual tree-lighting ceremony, holiday parade, Festival of Trees and Festival of Wreaths and Centerpieces.
Kicking off the evening will be a holiday parade, which will step off from the Great Meadow Federal Credit Union on East Main Street at 5:45 p.m.
Santa Claus, local law enforcement officials and firemen will process down Main Street to Veterans Memorial Park on Quaker Street. The group will be accompanied by Santa’s Helpers, a group of nine second- and third-graders from Mary J. Tanner School.
The students were chosen to ride along with the parade after exhibiting good behavior.
