Annual Holly Days festivities are now under way

Glencoe’s annual Holly Days celebration got under way last week with the Friday announcement of the first clue of the annual medallion hunt.
Clues for the treasure hunt will be announced each Friday on glen
coemn.org, the Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce and city of Glencoe website.
Holly Days activities continue this week. Thursday, Dec. 11, Coborn’s will host a Christmas Jubilee from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a visit from Santa Claus.
Also on Thursday, Trailblazer Transit and the Glencoe Light & Power Association are teaming up with Coborn’s to provide a “Tour of Lights” on Trailblazer buses. Buses will depart Coborn’s every 20 minutes between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to view lighting displays.
On Saturday, Dec. 13, a Holly Days Bazaar will be held at the Glencoe City Center from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a variety of vendors. Vendors can contact the Chamber office at 320-864-3650, or complete an online registration form at the Chamber website, to participate.
Saturday’s activities will be capped by the annual Holly Days lighted parade sponsored by the Glencoe Lions Club and the SnoPros Club. This year’s parade route starts near Coborn’s and runs west on 11th Street to the Glencoe City Center. Those who wish to participate may call 320-864-3640.
The following Saturday, Dec. 20, there will be a drive-by “Living Nativity” presented by Glencoe-area churches at Oak Leaf Park. The display will be available for viewing from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.
There will be six different scenes depicting the birth of Christ, which includes music, scenery, live animals and more.
The Boy Scouts will be collecting cash or food donations for the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf.
