The second annual Oak Ridge Parade of Lights was held on Saturday, Dec. 4 – with around 25 entries in the parade. The event raised $550, which was donated to the Old Appleton Brushhawks Christmas Basket Program.

The parade grew in its second year, with more floats and the addition of the Oak Ridge High School Marching Band.
