HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS PARADE

December 1, 2013

The 2013 Home for the Holidays Parade delighted young and old alike Saturday evening with some spectacular floats and performers.

This year’s parade was sponsored by Punxsutawney Eagles Club, and the Walston Club sponsored the fireworks that followed.

After the parade, Santa visited with children at the Eagles, where the parade winners were announced.

For more photos and a full list of winners, see Monday's edition of The Spirit.

CIRCLE OF TREES IN BARCLAY SQUARE

On Saturday night, the Punxsutawney Rotary Club held its annual announcement ceremony for the winners of the Circle of Trees in Barclay Square following the Home for the Holidays Parade.

Since 2007, local organizations have decked out their Christmas trees, and the Rotary Club — along with the program's sponsors — have aided those organizations with cash prizes for their participation.

"Christmas Around the World" was the 2013 theme, showcasing visual and artistic representations of different Christmas traditions in other countries.
