The annual Jamestown Christmas Parade and Holiday Celebration drew lots of people to downtown Jamestown. The parade started on the Third Street Bridge just before 6:30 p.m. Friday, December 6 and continued to Tracy Plaza at City Hall where the Christmas tree was lit.
This years’ tree is a 50-foot Colorado Blue Spruce donated by the family of Dr. Kenneth Erickson. The tree was harvested from the former Migliore Funeral Home at 415 East Fourth Street, which is now the location of Dr. Erickson’s chiropractic services.
The parade was streamed live on WNYNewsNow‘s Facebook page along with our 24/7 streaming network, co-hosted by Justin Gould and Dakota Hunter. The parade can be viewed in its entirety on our YouTube channel.
