The Knox Christmas tree lighting ceremony is on Sunday, November 27th.
Prior to the tree lighting, the Knox-Center Township Fire Department will be sponsoring a Christmas Parade. The fire trucks will leave the South Side Fire Station at approximately 4:30 p.m. and travel north on Main Street to the Starke County Courthouse in the downtown area. The firemen will be delivering Santa Claus to the tree lighting ceremony on the Courthouse Square at 5:00 p.m.
The Starke County Choralaires will be singing Christmas carols during the event. Immediately following the tree lighting ceremony, Santa will make his way to the Knox Community Center where he will listen to the children’s wishes and hot chocolate and cookies will be served.
The Knox-Center Township Fire Department had discussed reviving the Peppermint Parade this year, but they are planning for the big event for the kids next year.
