Annual Atlantic Lighted Parade a success despite snow and rain


December 5th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

Seventeen businesses and organizations braved the rain and snow Saturday evening in Atlantic, to participate in the Chamber’s Lighted Christmas Parade. Chamber Executive Director Megan Roberts says the Heritage House won the judged portion of the parade, with their custom made Ferris wheel and other carnival rides.

Coming in with a close second place finish in the parade was the Nishna Valley YMCA. Third place went to the First United Methodist Church. Scrooge candidates also participated in the parade with winner Janet Cappel as Grand Marshall.

Fireworks provided by AM Cohron and Son, preceded the parade,  and as has always been the tradition, Santa Claus rode the Atlantic Fire Department’s ladder truck, to bring the evening to a close.
