It was a chilly, clear night Saturday, Nov. 24, as the annual Parade of Lights illuminated the village streets in Blissfield.
Lane Street and Giles Avenue were lined with people gathered for the lighted event which included everything from a lighted sousaphone in the Blissfield High School marching band, to a giant reindeer driving a float covered in Christmas lights.
Lighted tractors, floats, cars, trucks, firetrucks – even a motor home – made their way along the parade route ahead of Santa and Mrs. Claus in horse-drawn cart. The parade was sponsored by Blissfield DDA/Main Street Program and presented by Blissfield Coney Island and B-Town Bar & Grill.
