Louisville – The Okolona area will gather to officially welcome the holiday season, when Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D-24) welcomes Santa Claus for Light up Okolona on Friday, November 16th.

“We want everyone to come out and join us for this special night,” says Flood. “It is the time of year when we celebrate our blessings as a community.”

The festivities will be held at Lone Oak Park located at the corner of Preston Highway and the Outer Loop. Flood and Okolona Business and Professional Association President Jerry Hoganson will greet Santa Claus for the start of the 2012 Holiday Season.

The fun will get started at 5:45p.m. as the Southern High School Concert Band sets the holiday mood with music before students from Blue Lick Elementary serenade the air with their sweet voices. Dancers from Stepping Out Dance Studio will perform holiday favorites as the most anticipated guest makes his arrival around 6:30p.m.

“I’m sure Santa will have many requests this year,” says Flood. “I want to thank all the groups who take time every year to welcome the holiday season.”

The Louisville Metro Police Department, District 7, Okolona Fire Department, Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) White Castle and Golden Corral are participating in the festivities.
