Holiday tradition will return to downtown Princeton, Indiana this December with the arrival of a new "Santa House" which will be located on the west side of the courthouse. The 10' x 12' structure is being built and donated by Princeton Auto Parke and will be decorated by Downtown Princeton Inc. The schedule for photos and visits with Santa in his new house will be:
Saturday, December 7th - immediately following the Snowflake Parade
Saturday, December 14th - 1-3 p.m.
Saturday, December 21st - 1-3 p.m.
Included among the other holiday activities scheduled for downtown Princeton, the annual Snowflake Christmas Parade will begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 7, 2013. The theme for this year's parade is "200 Years of Holiday Magic." Commemorating Gibson County's bicentennial as well as the 200th anniversary of the Gibson County Sheriff's Department, Sheriff George Ballard will serve as the parade's grand marshal. The lighted parade will feature floats and musical entries as well as the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus. The parade will begin at the intersection of Pinkney Street and South Main Street, continuing north up Main Street, west on State Street, then south on Hart Street. The parade route will end at the intersection of Hart and Broadway.
Prior to the parade, the Princeton Business and Retail Merchants will be offering carriage rides around the courthouse and Walgreen's will take photos with "Frosty the Snowman" in the gazebo from 2-4 p.m. Live music in the gazebo will be provided by the Holiday Brass ensemble immediately following the parade.
