Moonlight & Mistletoe, parade set for weekend
Nov 28, 2012 4:50 pm
The Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber of Commerce will get the season off to a fast start with the "Moonlight and Mistletoe" event and the annual Lebanon Christmas parade this weekend.
The chamber and the Lebanon Square merchants will celebrate the holiday season with Moonlight and Mistletoe on Saturday. This Christmas celebration is scheduled from 4-8 p.m. and will feature the lighting of the Lebanon Christmas tree by Mayor Philip Craighead at 5 p.m.
"Most of the retailers on the Square will be open and will have sales going on," said Chamber President Sue Vanatta. "They will also have events. LuLu's will have a board outside where you can write your Christmas list to Santa."
The Lebanon Square merchants are planning Christmas sales, and door prizes, while participants can visit food trucks, have pictures taken with Santa, have a chance to see a fire truck exhibit and more at the family event.
The chamber will have a book signing with Cumberland Baseball Coach Woody Hunt from 5-7 p.m. and Dinner in the Arcade with a seating at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and include dinner, entertainment and a carriage ride around the square.
Dreams Boutique will have storytelling for the children and a book signing by retired Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe of his autobiography “Ashes of Bluebird.”
Crystal Couture will have a wine tasting, and Pink Cactus will have pictures with Santa by Griffith Photography. Cumberland Presbyterian Church will feature a live nativity scene in front of the Neddy Jacobs Cabin.
Lulu’s Clothing will feature a children’s station to write a wish list to Santa, and The Paper Mill will feature a drop box for express mail to the North Pole.
One Sunday, the community is invited to the city of Lebanon’s Christmas parade on Sunday at 2 p.m. The theme for 2012 is “Pulling the Best Together for Christmas.”
"The parade will step off at 2 p.m.," Vanatta said. "Terry Ashe will be grand marshal and Santa and Mrs. Claus will both be riding in the fire truck. From beginning to end, the event takes about two hours. We have a great lineup."
