Parade of Lights and Christmas on the Square Make Season and Community Hearts Bright

Joseph Grant

The annual Parade of Lights and Christmas on the Square were a large success due in part to the number of residents that came out to spread Christmas cheer on Monday night. Parking spaces were at a minimum at area businesses off Broadway and the sidewalks were crammed with well-wishers during the family fun-filled event. The parade featured the Sweetwater Municipal Band, the SHS Band, the SHS Choir and the SHS Pop sensations who held a concert in the Square. Immediately following the parade, the Women’s Forum held a tree-lighten ceremony at the Nolan County Courthouse. There was also a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Area stores along Oak Street were open and filled with shoppers.
