Several holiday events planned

Home For The Holidays Friday

The Madison County Chamber of Commerce “Home for the Holidays” event will be this Friday.

The celebration will kick off at 6 p.m. with the Christmas Parade which will start at the corner of College and S. Mine La Motte and travel up Mine La Motte. It will turn up East Main, go around the courthouse and then down West Main. Finally, the route will continue down South Wood, ending just past Stockhoff Nursing Home.

There will also be free carriage rides until 8 p.m. when the festivities end. Project Graduation 2015 will have Santa Claus at Melissa’s Magic Touch on North Main (across from the county jail) so people can purchase pictures with Santa and refreshments. The Madison County Chamber would also like to encourage everyone to please stop in downtown and visit the businesses which are staying open for this event.
