DANVILLE — DANVILLE – The Danville Business Alliance is looking ahead to the holidays with a Santa parade and other special events planned.
Borough council members Tuesday night approved the parade for 11 a.m. Dec. 7. It is scheduled to form at the Montour County Courthouse and end in the area of Beiter’s Department Store on Mill Street.
The council also approved live music Nov. 24 at Canal Park during the annual holiday open house in the downtown from noon to 5 p.m. A heated tent, about 20-feet by 30-feet, will be set up for performers and the public.
The business alliance will be using the borough’s public address system during the holiday season with music playing from the candlelight preview through Christmas Eve.
The alliance has already received permission to cover parking meters starting Nov. 22 for free parking during the holidays. Volunteers will cover the meters with bags. The alliance doesn’t plan to use the wooden boxes on the meters this year.
