Parade of Lights illuminates Ronan

RONAN — The holiday season was on display in downtown Ronan Wednesday as members of the community put on a brief but brilliant display on Main Street. 

Floats lit up Main Street from St. Luke’s Hospital to Bockman Park as part of the Parade of Lights Wednesday evening. 

A trio of veterans served as honor guard and paraded the nation’s flag at the head of the procession. 

Close behind the honor guard was the Fisher Family float, which displayed a “Pirate’s Christmas” with a dressed up boat.

O’Leary’s Old Ladies followed with Santa at the helm. The ladies were dressed festively as colorfully adorned Christmas presents.

A family float of a children on hay bales followed, then a story time Christmas float presented by Community Bank displayed a living room and reading chair, complete with a fireplace.

A dressed up four-wheeler with Christmas lights was followed by a horse-drawn hay wagon filled with children. Santa ended the procession waving to children from his seat in Ronan Power Product’s four-wheeler.

The evening culminated with a bonfire in Ronan’s Bockman Park, where parade-goers warmed themselves and enjoyed impromptu caroling.
