A committee has been formed to plan a new parade on the Island.
The Grand Island Chamber of Commerce is working on a proposal to hold the "Light Up the Boulevard" holiday parade on Nov. 17, an event to kick off the holiday season.
The concept begins with businesses along the boulevard and throughout Grand Island decorating their storefronts with lights. The parade route would enter Grand Island Boulevard from the Tops parking lot, turn down Baseline Road and finish at the Town Commons for a tree lighting ceremony. A planning committee meeting was scheduled for Friday at McMahon's Restaurant. Francine McMahon is the committee chairperson.
