Stupid COVID-19 is ruining everything, including the annual GR Santa Parade. Due to new restrictions put out by the MDHHS, the GR Jaycees and parade committee decided it was best to say, "maybe next year, Santa."
There are a lot of Christmas related events this weekend along with some comedy and music. We also have a few outdoor activities from skating to fat tire biking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. There is The Nutcracker, The Polar Express, Lights Out and Basketball. We also have a Santa Parade and a Santa Train!
WZZM TV 13 has been broadcasting in town for well over 50 years, so when they uncovered video from the 1961 Santa Parade--from 50 years ago--well I think it's pretty cool! Especially when you can see WFGR and Cluck in the 2011 version of the parade. WZZM will be taking video of this parade as well, so in another 50 years people can see how we looked way back in 2011.
