ADELANTO, Calif. — Plans are in place in the City of Adelanto to hold its 14th annual Christmas parade, set for Saturday, December 8 at 10:00.
Once again, the parade will kick off at the corner of Seneca and Aster Roads ending at Desert Trails Elementary School on Bellflower. Entries are being accepted until Monday, November 15, 2018 6:00 p.m.
Another popular annual event is the “Handlebars for Christmas Giveaway.” The giveaway gives students in Adelanto an opportunity to participate in a drawing to win a bike.
Students receive a “Golden Ticket” when they donate a can or box of non-expired food. Collected items are used to support food banks at High Desert Outreach and Adelanto Community Resource Center.
“The last day to submit the Golden Ticket is November 15, and the winners will be notified November 29,” said Cervantes. Winners will receive their bikes at the December 12 City Council meeting.
Also planned to get everyone in the holiday spirit is the annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony held in front of City Hall. Set for November 29 at 6:30 p.m., the event will have a visit from Santa Claus, along with carolers and refreshments for attendees.
