This year's gala will feature a holiday parade through downtown Haughton, with local businesses and community groups participating with decorated vehicles, floats and finishing with the star of the show, Santa Claus.

Even with the moderate fall-like temperatures, the sleigh bells will be jingling, and Santa Claus with his jolly laugh, will still feel merry and bright, as all festival goers enjoy the nostalgic small town holiday spirit.
