As we announced last Monday, an Orange Holiday Festival fan-favorite event, The Lighted Tractor Parade, now in its third year, will take place after all.
First Selectman Jim Zeoli notified Orange Live of the new, complete event details.
He said, “There is a makeup event this Sunday at the fairgrounds. The park and Rec Dept will have hotdogs and drinks. They will be holding an outdoor movie night for the kids with a couple of Disney movies.”
“At 4:30 p.m., the lighted tractors will parade up Orange Center Road to the Green, wait for the police to open the road, clear traffic, then close again so the tractors will return to the fairgrounds,” he said. “A new event is being born!”
Tractor Participants will line up on the Basketball Ball Court Side of Community Center at 4:00 p.m.
The Parade will begin at 4:30 p.m. followed by drive-in holiday movies beginning at 6:00 PM at High Plains. Hot dogs, chili, hot chocolate, and popcorn will be available.
This morning the temperature was in the teens, but luckily, by the time this event begins, it will be closer to 40, or at least the upper 30s. But you really need to be prepared. Dress appropriately for the activities you’re planning to enjoy.
If your kids choose to be outside, bring waterproof blankets to cover the ground on which to put warm blankets for the movie viewing. Dress the kids in snowsuits and snow boots so they’ll be toasty warm during the movies.
Come, enjoy and spread the word!
