It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Antelope County Courthouse thanks to the combined efforts of the Neligh-Oakdale FBLA and Neligh Chamber of Commerce.
FLBA students and parents turned out in droves Sunday afternoon to place decorations around the courthouse as one of their annual service projects to assist the Neligh Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the community's annual Christmas kickoff celebration.
The Christmas decorations will officially be lit on Sunday, Nov. 27, following the lighted parade. The parade line-up starts at 5 p.m. with the parade through Main Street at 5:30 p.m. The lights will be turned on immediately following the parade. Children are encouraged to gather around the gazebo to sing Christmas carols prior to the lighting.
The community is then invited to the American Legion for a free hotdog feed sponsored by Carhart Lumber, games from the FBLA and, of course, a visit with Santa Claus. The Antelope County News will be taking photos with Santa at the event.
