'Home for Christmas'

Tree lighting, parade usher in holiday on Saturday

(Continued)

Somerset —

The parade, sponsored by the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce, will feature about 70 units, and travel about 1.4 miles over a two-hour period. The parade will form at Meece Middle School; move west along East Mt. Vernon Street; turn north on College Street and proceed past Somerset High School; turn west on Oak Street; then south on North Main Street past Fountain Square, and onto Spring Street, ending about 7 p.m. in the Pulaski Court of Justice parking area. 
These events have become a tradition in Somerset over the decades, and helps usher in the holiday season with goodwill and fellowship, noted Evans.
“We live in such a fast-paced world anymore, nobody usually gets to see their family and close friends as much as they would like,” she said. “When you come out to an event like this, it makes it special to get to see people. It’s just a fun sense of Christmas.”
