OCEANA, WV (LOOTPRESS) – The historic town of Oceana is getting into the Christmas spirit this holiday season with events that will appeal to the entire family.
Things kicked off on December 2nd, with a parade featuring lights, floats, and of course, plenty of holiday apparel. Town Mayor Tom Evans encouraged local businesses to get in on the festivities by adorning their establishments with Christmas-themed decor, and has even personally donated cash prizes, which are to be awarded to the top 3 participants. The prize for first place will be $75, while the second place winner will take home $50, and the third place winner will receive $25.
The fun continues tonight, December 3rd, with a tree lighting ceremony which will take place at 7pm. This will be followed by caroling and hot cocoa, which will be contributed by Summit Community Bank.
It has been said that Santa Claus himself will be making a number of appearances in town throughout the month to dine and mingle with the locals. The first stop of the big man’s holiday tour will be at the town McDonald’s, where he will be having breakfast on Saturday, December 4th, from 8am to 11am.
Santa will return once more on Saturday, December 11th. On this stop he will be having breakfast at Tutor’s Biscuit World from 8am to 11am, after which the sleigh will head over to Rae’s Diner for lunch from 12pm to 3pm. No purchase is necessary to join Santa on these stops.
