2019 Annual Parade of Lights Continues to Grow


Santa's Reindeers were busy pulling this race car float to the Whoville party.

The highly anticipated Parade of Lights took place this past Thursday, December 12th, beginning at the old TVI building. The Annual event, which is organized by the Akwesasne Coalition for Community Empowerment continues to grow every year. This year the parade was followed by a Whoville Dance party at the Travis Solomon Lacrosse Box.

Santa had to hitch a ride to the party, because his reindeers left him behind.

But before the party, the Parade of Lights was busy spreading holiday cheer along Route 37. Many different businesses and organizations took part in the parade by decorating their vehicles in array of Christmas lights, or going all out on a Christmas themed float. One of the highlights of the parade, of course, are all the goodies that are tossed out to the spectators; what would a parade be without candy being given out?

The event was short and sweet, which made it much more enjoyable for the young and old eager to see the beautiful floats while standing outside on a cold winter night. The cold didn't stop anyone from getting out of their vehicles to take in all the bright lights and festive floats. The Coalition for Community Empowerment never fails to bring the community together for drug and alcohol-free, family-oriented fun. One can only wonder what next year's Parade of Lights will bring.
