Local communities are getting into the Christmas spirit. Knox and North Judson have scheduled their annual tree lighting ceremonies for next week.
Knox residents are invited to gather at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 29. The Starke County Choralairs will lead the crowd in singing Christmas songs, as the Knox Fire Department escorts Santa down Main Street to the community center. After the tree lighting, the celebration will move inside, where the Knox Community School Choirs and the Knox High School Jazz Band will perform, and kids will have the chance to visit with Santa.
North Judson’s tree lighting will take place Friday, December 4 at 6:00 p.m. at Norwayne Field, followed by visits with Santa at the Methodist Church Fellowship Hall.
