North East's town hall is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Staff from the Town donated three hours of their own time last week each to create a winter wonderland at the South Main Street building.
Each of the windows on the side of the building are decorated with themed snowmen. There's a snowman police officer, cowboy, caroler, baker, fishermen, beach vacationer, and more.
Different town staff members each created a window, which is lit at night.
The interior front of town hall windows are also being decorated with various snowmen and other items. The work is being done as the town gears up to host the annual Cecil County Christmas Parade.
The parade is set for Saturday, December 3 at noon on Main Street. Award categories for entrants include commercial floats, non profit floats for both adult and youth, adult and youth marching units with music and without music, equestrian, animal, antique car, modified car, seems happiest to be in the parade, and the mayor's award.
You may sign up for the parade but must do so by November 28. To apply, on the web go to www.northeastmd.org or call (410) 287-5801.
North East will also welcome visitors and locals alike during the annual Christmas tree lighting in the town park. That will be held on Friday, November 26 at 5:30 p.m. in the town park. The North East Middle School Band will perform. Santa will also arrive.
Those with no time to bake can support the Christmas Cookie Walk. That will be held on December 10 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at St. Mary Anne's Episcopal Church, South Main Street. Other second Saturday events will also be held that day.
Plans for both residential and commercial Christmas decorating contests are in the works. Details will be announced in the coming days.
