Santa Claus is coming to town on Sunday as the Neligh Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Christmas kickoff event. There will also be a parade, courthouse lighting, Christmas carols, hot dog feed, photos with Santa and lots of games.
Events will begin at 5 p.m. on Sunday with the Lighted Parade lineup in Riverside Park. The parade through Main Street will be at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Courthouse Lighting. Santa Claus will lead the lighting before he makes his grand entrance at the Neligh Legion. The Antelope County News is sponsoring photos with Santa from 6-7:30 p.m.
There will be a free hot dog feed sponsored by Carhart Lumber and games from the Neligh-Oakdale FBLA.
The Merry Monday sales event will be on Monday, Nov. 28, with nearly 20 businesses working together to offer sales and specials to encourage local shopping this holiday season. Click here to see all of the deals. The Chamber is giving away $100 in Neligh Big Bucks, too. People can register here.
The Chamber Business Bingo also begins on Monday. Bingo sheets are available at the Chamber office. A $20 receipt from any Chamber business (retail or service) will fill a bingo space for each participant. Two winners will be announced each week with $1,400 given away during the holiday.
The Chamber and City of Neligh will again be sponsoring a Christmas Light Contest with the winners of the three categories receiving $100 of their electric bill. The categories are residential, religious and commercial. Judging will be during an evening sometime between Dec. 13-20.
