Move over Paris. On Friday Chinook, Mont. was the “city of lights, ” filled with music and food and people during the 27th Annual Parade of Lights and Christmas Stroll.
Downtown Chinook was filled Friday night by hundreds of community members to enjoy some strolling, some shopping, some sights and sounds.
The Parade of Lights featured more than a dozen vehicles decked out in holiday garb and lighting up the chilled night.
Chinook’s Second Annual Festival of Trees raised nearly $2,000 for the 13 trees that were auctioned, according to Chinook Chamber of Commerce Secretary Heather DePriest.
“We had a great group of people that came in to bid on trees, ” DePriest said. “They were … just very, very giving individuals. ”
Those funds will help ambulance provider Blaine 1 Inc. purchase a new defibrillator, the Chinook Food Bank stock up, and the Garden Club keep up their arrangements downtown during the summer.
