7th annual Whitley County Lighted Christmas Parade is November 23

From reports

Excitement is building for Santa Claus' arrival in Whitley County next week with the seventh annual Whitley County Christmas Parade slated for Friday, November 23, 2018 at 6 p.m.
The parade, featuring illuminated floats and walking units, will lineup near Eagle Tech Academy, heading south on Walnut Street, east on Van Buren Street and then south at the corner of Chauncey and Van Buren Streets in downtown Columbia City.
Santa will, of course, be the featured parade participant -- arriving in a surprise fashion to delight the young and young at heart as he does each year. Santa works to create a unique float (or two) to celebrate this arrival in style and it is all a surprise that won't be revealed until parade night!
As soon as Santa arrives at his house, located on the corner of Chauncey and Van Buren Streets, a tree lighting ceremony will begin with musical performances by the Whitley Community Children's Choir and the Columbia City High School Marching Eagles Band.
Activities will be planned in downtown Columbia City on parade night at several local businesses. Children can make an ornament and enjoy refreshments at the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center. Refreshments will be available at the Chamber as well.
Sponsors for the parade include SRC, Northeastern REMC, City of Columbia City, Passages Inc., The Clugston, Teghtmeyer ACE Hardware, Morsches Builder's Mart, Coffee News of Northeast Indiana, Rabb Water Systems, Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center, Talk of the Town and J&K Communications, Eberly Photography & Videography, Charlie & Joe Wigent, The Clark Family, The Gaerte Family, The Lowrance & Henney Families, The Romano Family and The Schmitt Family.
