The annual Farmer City Christmas Parade is this Sunday.
City Administrator for the City of Farmer City Sue McLaughlin explains the community is very proud of their Christmas parade as it is one of the largest in the area.
The Farmer City Christmas parade falls a little earlier than most which means City crews have to get out there and start getting those Christmas decorations up and ready early in November. McLaughlin says they have been fortunate to have been blessed with good weather the last few weeks.
According to McLaughlin, the City has had quite the saga getting a new tree in its downtown that they hope will become the tree that gets decorated for Christmas in future years. For now, she notes it will not be decorated this year.
The Farmer City Christmas Parade is again at 2 pm in Farmer City.
