One of the nice things about going to work at 4 a.m. is getting this view every morning.

The Holiday Parade will make its way down the avenue on November 26th, the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

The Festival of Trees at The Rivermill and the lighting of the Christmas Tree in Henry Law Park are both set for Friday, December 1st.

Christmas is only 39 days away!
