GUERNSEY—Changes have been made to this year’s Winter’s Eve Festival scheduled for Wednesday, December 5th. One of the most dramatic changes has been made to the parade route,
This year, the parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the NORTH end of Wyoming Avenue and travel SOUTH, ending at the Guernsey-Sunrise Schools. That change has been made largely due to the number of activities that have been added and are being held at the school--a more centralized location that also mitigates severe weather conditions should they occur.
Registration forms for the parade are available at Guernsey City Hall, Register Cliff Pharmacy, Oregon Trail Bank and First State Bank. Registrations are required and must be returned no later than 4 p.m., December 3rd at Guernsey City Hall.
In addition to some of the businesses hosting open house activities throughout the day, the evening’s schedule includes:
