“Holly Daze” is happening on Dec. 5-6 this Christmas season.
This two-day event in Emo is a kick-off to the holiday season.
There will be a parade Friday evening. Floats assemble at 5:30 p.m. at the Rec Centre; the parade starts at 6 p.m. and finishes at Donald Young School.
Hot chocolate and cookies will be served after the parade. Then, to top the event off, there will be fireworks.
Friday and Saturday the Emo Legion will host its annual “Crafts Galore” with a variety of Christmas gift ideas and maybe even something for yourself.
Soup and sandwiches with a beverage will be available both days. Pictures with Santa take place at the Legion from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday.
There will be skating at the tennis courts (if the ice is ready). Saturday will be a day of visiting and signing up for the “Christmas Emo Bucks” draw. Be sure to make “Holly Daze” a part of your Christmas tradition this year and always.
