Highland Park Department of Public Safety Sgt. Lance Koppa said the town has set up a tent and that hot cocoa will be served. If that’s not enough to keep people cozy, there will also be plenty of “warm personalities” on hand, he said.
This year, Highland Park Mayor Joel Williams will be doing the honors of setting the over 5,000 red, blue, orange, and green Christmas lights ablaze. Last year the honor went to Margaret McDermott.
The Lads and Lassies will also be performing Christmas carols, and Santa should be arriving on a big red fire truck.
If you’re not too intimidated by the weather, swing on by. It’s usually the perfect start to the holiday season.
