Brookville Prepares for Light Up Night

brookville-light-upBROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – The Light Up Brookville committee is busy working to prepare for their 10th annual festival and parade that is set to be held on Friday, November 25, on Main Street in Brookville.

There will be family-friendly, fun activities along with hot, delicious food and holiday crafts and games.

The activities begin at 5:00 p.m.

Pre-parade activities include story telling by local celebrity readers in store front windows, automated train rides down Main Street for the entire family, a caricature artist creating your likeness, a face painter will color your selected design on your cheeks, and the Jefferson County History Center Bowdish train display is open for viewing.

DiMartino Ice Company of Jeannette returns to create an interactive sculpture to climb on and even have your photo taken there. Come with your cameras and watch this creation take form during the event.

Children’s crafts can be made under both big tents and are sponsored by the YMCA, Penn Highlands Brookville, PATHS, and Patty Cakes.

The Original Brass Ensemble will also be playing holiday tunes. Carolers are welcome to sing on the Courthouse steps as well as stroll along the street.

Events are free to the public with a small admission charge for the train exhibit at the History Center. Call 814-849-2957 if more information is needed for events.

Holiday street decorations and the Community Christmas Tree are officially lighted immediately prior to the parade which steps off at 7:00 p.m.

The parade is filled with live music, floats, marching units, fire trucks, and the arrival of Santa atop a Brookville Volunteer Fire Company truck.

Community clubs and organizations are encouraged to participate by entering any type of unit. Line up starts at the Presbyterian Church at 6:30 p.m. Cash prizes of $250.00 will be awarded for best float, best fire truck, and judge’s choice award.

Call 814-715-0327 for more information and guidelines.

At his cottage, Santa meets and listens to each child as they share their gift list and then receive a box of sweets from Mrs. Claus. Santa and Mrs. Claus continue to have hours in their cottage in front of the Courthouse until Christmas. Please check times posted at the cottage.

Food vendors will have delicious, hot seasonal fare at their stands at the Town Square all evening. Come for dinner or a snack and enjoy.

Downtown stores are open late to start the holiday shopping season. Many have door prizes and specials for this night only.

Come, enjoy, and create memories to last a lifetime.

Again this year, the Moonlite All American Drive-In Theatre outside of Brookville will be showing free movies on Small Business Saturday on November 26.

The box office opens at 5:00 p.m. with the shows beginning at 6:00 p.m., and everyone is admitted free.
