With no major Christmas light displays in Quincy anymore (I sure do miss the Avenue of Lights), the City of Canton announced the date for their annual Parade of Lights.

Mark your calendars for December 7th for this year's National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation themed Parade of Lights. There will be other events throughout the evening leading up to the parade including a tree lighting ceremony at Central Park at 5:00 pm. The local Boy Scouts will have a bonfire where you can roast your own s'mores (supplies will be provided), and the Canton Main Street Association will have hot cocoa available. There will also be a "Cousin Eddie" contest, with details being announced at a later date.

So if you're like me, and you miss the Avenue of Lights, take a short drive to Cantonon December 7th and start a new family tradition.
