Bring the family and celebrate the holiday season at the 11th annual Farwell Holiday Lights Festival and Marketplace and see the Parade full of holiday lights and decorations on December 9!

The Farwell Area Chamber of Commerce is presenting the annual festival, and the Holiday Market Place which will be held in the Farwell High School Atrium on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Crafters and Venders, both local and from out of town will be displaying unique and handmade gift items, and there will be a silent auction.

A donation will also enable visitors to enjoy the Holiday Lights Luncheon in the FHS Cafeteria with soup, desert and beverage from 11:30 to 2 p.m.

Crafters who would like to participate in the Marketplace should call the Farwell Area Chamber office at 588-0580 for details.

Wind up the festivities at the 11th annual Holiday Lights Parade through the Village.

This year’s parade theme is “The 12 Days of Christmas.” No live flames or candles are allowed and no live Santas, but a cutout or blow up figure will be welcomed.
There’s no fee to participate in this year’s parade. The flyer says, “Just bring your float, vehicle, golf cart or anything that you can put lights on. The more lights, the brighter the parade!” There will be a prize for the best holiday entry.

Registration and lineup will be at the Isabella Bank parking lot at 5 p.m. and the brightly lit parade will travel down Main Street at 5:30 p.m.

After the parade the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held at the Farwell Village Park.

Mark the date, December 9th and come to Farwell to share the fun, games and Christmas Parade.
