Santa Claus in Canton

Councilor Cindy Shanks announced plans for the Christmas celebration. Canton residents are invited to join in celebrating the holidays by decorating their houses for a Christmas lighting contest. Houses decorated before the week of December 8 will be eligible to win a cash prize. Shanks asked if the city would sponsor the Christmas lighting contest. The Council noted that it had done so last year with good results and a motion carried to sponsor the contest with prizes of $150 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place.

Santa Claus will be at the Town hall in Canton on Saturday, December 13 from 3 pm – 5 pm. There will be lunch, prizes, treat bags, wagon rides and free pictures with Santa. Afterwards, a lighted evening parade will take place at 6:30 pm and the home decorating winners will be announced. Free hot chocolate will be served on Main Street during the parade to help you stay warm. Following the parade there will be coffee and a pot luck gathering at the Town Hall. Everyone is welcome.
