On Saturday evening the clouds parted and allowed the Festival of Lights Parade to come to life — 100 all alight with the spirit of the Christmas Season. But none of this happens without the help of time and treasure from the community. I want to thank all of our sponsors whose generosity made the event happen. And it's the people who working together just make the parade seem to happen.
Thank you to the Auburn Rotary Club, the City and their employees, the Auburn Police Department, the Chamber of Commerce volunteers, Auburn's 20/30 Club who clean up the street on Sunday morning and lastly Santa Claus who made the trip again this year from the North Pole. Thanks St. Nick!
On behalf of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, I wish you a Merry Christmas.
Steven Galyardt, Festival of Lights Parade chairman
