Village of Holley makes changes to holiday festival

By on November 25, 2012

This year the Village of Holley is working hard to expand and improve the Memory Bulb Tree Lighting Ceremony. New this year is a Festival of Lights Parade that will begin Saturday, December 1, at 6 p.m. forming at the Elementary School and proceeding down Main Street to the traffic light and through the Public Square, ending at the Fire Hall.

This year’s parade will feature the Holley High School Band, the High School Chorus, the Kendall Lawn Chair Ladies, decorated floats, fire trucks and, of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus and other favorites. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated entries.

Any group or individuals who like to decorate a truck, car or float and enter the parade can do so by calling the village office at 638-6367 or by contacting Trustee David Dill at 943-9188,

Immediately after the parade the annual Lighting of the Memory Bulb Tree will be held. A reception will be held at the Holley Fire Hall. The reception is free for those who purchase Memory Bulbs. They will be issued five tickets per adult bulb and one free ticket per child bulb. The reception is open to the public for a donation of $1 per person. Pizza and snacks will be provided and entertainment will be provided by the Holley High School Band and Chorus.

Also new this year, the Murray Holley Historical Society will be holding an Open House and Holiday Bake Sale on Saturday, December 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Depot Museum next to the Save-A-Lot.

Jonathan’s Bakery at 23 Public Square will be open from 5 to 7 p.m. and will provide coffee, hot chocolate and pastries for sale. This year’s Festival is sponsored by the Village of Holley, Save-a-Lot, Jonathan’s Bakery, First Niagara Bank and Sam’s Diner.
