Traditional Crocker Christmas parade replaced this year by tree lighting

CROCKER, Mo. (Dec. 1, 2010) — The traditional Christmas parade won’t be held this year in Crocker, but Mayor Linda Wilson says city leaders have alternate plans on Friday that they hope will draw many residents and those from area communities.

“We have a tree, a white pine in our park, and its name is Elmer,” Wilson said. “We’re going to have a bonfire and have some music and have some cocoa and cookies, and at 6:30 p.m. we’re going to actually light the tree.”

The tree lighting will be with electric lights, not setting the tree on fire with a bonfire.

“Last year the tree was not lit, so the city decided to put something together in connection with the Green Thumb Garden Club of Crocker; they’re also assisting in this because they do such wonderful work with our parks and taking care of our flowerbeds and so forth, and they’re very involved with this project as well.”

Other upcoming events in Crocker include a “Journey to Bethlehem” nativity sponsored by Crocker Christian Church on Nov. 10 and Nov. 11.

Although Crocker won’t have a parade through town this year, Wilson said she believes the Crocker firefighters will be participating in similar Christmas parades held this Saturday in Laquey and this Sunday in Waynesville.
