The holidays get into full swing this weekend with Wyanodotte’s annual tree lighting ceremony on Friday and the 69th annual Christmas Parade on Saturday morning.
The tree lighting ceremony will last from 6 to 7 p.m. Friday at Sycamore and Biddle. A sing-a-long featuring the choirs of Roosevelt High School and First United Methodist Church will be a part of the event, which also coincides with the city’s monthly Third Friday celebration. Children's activities also will be available.
At 10 a.m. Saturday, the parade begins near Ford and lasts about an hour as it heads down Biddle to Eureka.
Those lining the sidewalks to see the parade will be treated to many displays, such as clowns, floats and marching bands. Santa will be at the end of the parade, and will surely put smiles on the faces of all the good little boys and girls in the crowd.
Longtime Wyandotte business owner Joe Daly has been picked to serve as the grand marshal of this year’s parade. Daly is the owner of and serves as president of Daly Merritt Properties, Inc.
“With his faithful financial contributions over the years, he has demonstrated a deep commitment to the city of Wyandotte,” the city said of Daly in written statement.
