The Christmas in the Village Light Parade will start at 6 p.m. Line-up begins at 4:45 pm at Central Noble Schools on the west side of the school along Cougar Court.

Lighting of the Christmas Tree Ceremony will be after the Parade at approximately 7 p.m. This will take place on the northeast corner of the Noble County Courthouse Square.
