Okolona will officially welcome the holiday season when Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D-24) welcomes Santa Claus for Light up Okolona on Friday, November 18th.

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

The festivities will be held this year at 8501 Preston Highway just behind the Okolona Fire Station. Flood and Okolona Business and Professional Association President Greg Scheller will greet Santa Claus for the start of the Holiday Season.

The fun will get started at 5:45pm with the Southern High School Concert Band sets the holiday mood with music before dancers from Stepping Out Dance Studio and children from Blue Lick Elementary perform the sounds of the season.

The Jolly Old Elf from the North Pole will make his arrival at around 6:30pm.

“I’m sure Santa will have many requests this year and there will be fun and entertainment for everyone,” says Flood. “I want to thank all the many groups who every year takes the time to help all of enjoy the holiday season.”

Louisville Metro Police Department, District 7, Okolona Fire Department, White Castle and Golden Corral are also participating in the festivities.
