Brook Park welcomes holiday season
December 7, 2012 by James
Brook Park, located approximately 20 miles north of Medina, welcomed in the holiday season on Sunday, December 2 with its annual holiday parade.
In spite of threats of thunderstorms earlier in the day, hundreds still turned out to watch the Brook Park Holiday Parade move through the town and see the Mayor light up the city at the lighting ceremony. A speaker system played holiday music and the Brook Park Boosters merrily passed around hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. Frosty the Snowman, the Grinch, and many other Christmas characters were on hand to take photos with the kids and spread the holiday cheer. No Christmas celebration is complete without Mr. and Mrs. Claus of course. The jolly couple was also on hand to serve as co-masters of the parade and ceremony.
Annual holiday parades, ceremonies, and other community festivities often bring in extra business for surrounding print companies. Celebrations such as the annual Brook Park Holiday Parade typically use banner printing for floats in the parade or to welcome guests to the event. Flyer printing and poster printing may also be used to announce the activity to the community prior to the event.
The parade made its way to City Hall, where Mayor Mark Elliot and his wife Vicki thanked everyone for participating in the event. Mayor Elliot then turned the stage over to Santa and Mrs. Claus, who led the gathering of excited community members in a jolly round of ‘Jingle Bells’. As the last few words of the song rang out through the night, the city magically lit up and lights of red, green, and white winked back at the community.
