For First Friday on Dec. 6, throngs will take to the streets of downtown Havre de Grace for the city's annual holiday parade and Christmas tree lighting.
The parade starts at 6 p.m. in front of the American Legion on St. John St. and will proceed onto Washington Street until it concludes at Congress Avenue.
Holiday shoppers, stores will be open downtown for those looking to support local businesses (I did all my holiday shopping in downtown Havre de Grace last year!).
