WARSAW – Fans of the Christmas season found a double dose of fun Friday night, Dec. 6, in downtown Warsaw.
Hundreds lined Center Street to watch the annual Twinkle Parade that cruised along Center Street during First Friday’s Hometown Holly Days celebration. The parade, and plenty of people, then streamed down to Central Park where the massive Christmas display was lit up for the first time this season.
Hundreds stood in line to meet Saint Nick at the Santa House while other toasted marshmallows over open fire pits, enjoyed ice carvings and had a chance to enjoy a carriage ride.
Dozens of vehicles dressed up in Christmas lights cruised through the downtown for the Twinkle Parade. InkFreeNews photo by Dan Spalding.
