The Second Annual Banks Christmas Light Parade is still on despite COVID-19 restrictions, but with a twist.
Instead of lighted parade floats taking a slow trek through town, they’ll stage instead at Sunset Park, and visitors will stay in their cars and drive past the lighted displays, which will be stationary.
Titled “A drive thru Holiday Light Adventure,” the event is put on by a group of volunteers in Banks, who, according to Marsha Kirk, are expecting Santa himself to make an appearance (this newspaper could not reach Santa for comment), as is the Banks Fire District. At last year’s lighted parade, race cars, trucks, floats and more were all on display, and are expected to return this year as well.
Planned for Saturday . . .
