This year’s Emo “Holly Daze” will feature many of the usual events including a Christmas parade, fireworks, craft show, draw prizes, merchant specials, cutest baby contest, tree lighting ceremony, food drive and much more!
Santa Claus will even make an appearance, and pictures with Santa will be available, too!
This annual event is what the Chamber of Commerce, the Township of Emo and the people of the district make it.
If you have an idea for a float, start working on it. If you have an idea for an activity, get hold of the planning committee and get it on the schedule.
Waiting until the last minute will not make your idea a success.
Town businesses are planning for some fantastic sales, so make sure you mark Dec. 6 and 7 on your calendar and plan on attending.
Keep it local, keep it successful and celebrate the season by attending Emo’s “Holly Daze 2019.”
