Norris City's first lighted Christmas parade was held last night as a part of the "Christmas in the Village" festival hosted by the Norris City Chamber of Commerce. Over 20 entries participated, driving through the downtown area on Main and Division Streets. Awards were given in three categories. Winner of the Best Decorated category was Banterra Bank. The Best Christmas Spirit award went to Norris City 1st United Methodist Church and the award for Best Use of Lights went to Wabash Area Development, Inc. Following the parade, the downtown Christmas tree was lit on the corner of Main and Division, and Santa greeted children at the former BBQ restaurant, with free picture-taking available for all.
