BUFFALO — The first of Union County’s Christmas Parades took place Sunday when the Buffalo Christmas Parade was held in the Buffalo Community.
Sunday’s parade featured bands, floats, a parade marshal and, of course, Santa Claus who made the first of six major appearances that he will make this year in Union County.
Why so many major appearances by Santa? That’s because there are five Christmas Parades in Union County.
The Buffalo Christmas Parade was the first of the parades and the second will be the Jonesville Christmas Parade this Saturday at 3 p.m. in the Town of Jonesville. The Lockhart Christmas Parade in the Town of Lockhart will be next at 3 p.m. this Sunday.
On Saturday, Dec. 12 it will be the turn of the Town of Carlisle which will hold the Carlisle Christmas Parade that day at 2 p.m. Then, on Sunday, Dec. 13, the last Christmas Parade of the year, the Union Christmas Parade, will take place in the City of Union at 3 p.m.
The parades won’t be Santa’s only appearance in Union County, however, as we have it on reliable information that he is likely to make a number of appearances at different locations between now and December 25 to learn what children here in the county want to find under their Christmas Trees and in their Christmas Stockings on Christmas Day.
Speaking of Christmas Day, we did mention that Santa will be making six major appearances here in Union County this month. There are, however, only five Christmas Parades in Union County, so when and where will his sixth major appearance be?
Why Christmas Eve, of course, when he returns to Union County to bring good little boys and girls the toys and other gifts his elves made for them in his shop at the North Pole. Christmas Eve, of course, is Santa’s most important appearance in Union County, but it’s the only one where we won’t see him because we’ll all be sound asleep.
