If one couldn’t find anything to do this Thanksgiving weekend, then one wasn’t looking very hard because there was plenty to do in Greene County. Friday evening Roodhouse had their Christmas in the Park and Saturday there was a full day of events in Whiteside Park with the Lions Club’s Christmas in the Park followed by the first Christmas Parade.
Vendors selling just about everything imaginable lined the perimeter of Whiteside Park along with several food vendors with everything from funnel cakes to chicken and noodles to ease those hunger pangs.
Santa was on hand to hear the wishes of all the good little girls and boys and hand out treats. He even visited with White Hall Mayor Brad Staats, who he remembered from when he was a little boy.
On the stage, North Greene’s own Peyton Tucker kept folks entertained singing Christmas Carols and throughout the day names were drawn for free giveaways. At the end of the evening, one lucky winner from White Hall received a free month’s utility bill from the city of White Hall.
At 5:30 p.m., a spectacular Christmas parade delighted all with everything from fancy lighted floats to lighted four-wheelers lighting up the night sky – and throwing out candy to the kids.
