Christmas Walk scheduled for Friday, December 1

The Christmas Walk and Parade is on for Friday, Dec. 1, in downtown Warren.

The Times Observer has submitted its special event application to the City of Warren for the annual parade.

The event draws more than 1,000 people each year, regardless of the weather.

“The Christmas Walk and Parade is a good community event to show off everything downtown Warren has to offer,” Times Observer Publisher Robert Patchen said. “It is also a good opportunity to partner with the other downtown merchants.”

“We’re still in the early planning stages,” Patchen said. “We would love to hear ideas and input from the community and the downtown businesses.”

The parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. Units will begin lining up at 5:30 p.m. in the same location as in past years.

As always, there will be numerous vendors throughout the central downtown area.

Those who would like to participate in the parade or as vendors may contact Patchen at 723-8200 or by email at
