The Albion Area Chamber of Commerce announced the continuation of a pair of Albion Christmas traditions.

Both the annual Breakfast with Santa event and the Albion Lighted Christmas Parade will be taking place in early December this year. The date for both happenings have been set for Dec. 12.

Breakfast with Santa will take place in the Albion Firehouse once again this year. Families will be welcome to come enjoy a warm breakfast, the opportunity to tell Santa the items on their Christmas wishlists and check out the equipment of the Albion Fire Department.

The lighted parade will occur the following evening, shortly after sunset. The theme of this year’s parade is Christmas in Paradise.

The chamber is also encouraging city businesses to host open houses on Dec.12, as well as dressing up their storefronts in the spirit of Christmas. An award for Best Dressed Window will be awarded.
