KOOSKIA/KAMIAH — There are two tree lighting ceremonies this week. Kamiah Light Parade will be held on Friday, Dec. 6, at 6 p.m. They will have their children’s flashlights parade with lighted floats, and the entrance of Santa’s coming to town. This will also herald the end of the bidding on the wreaths and arrangements that were donated by local artist and craftsmen. If you haven’t bid, do it now at the Central Idaho Agency on Main Street in Kamiah. The Kooskia Tree Lighting Ceremony and Jingle Bell Parade will be held this Friday. The parade will line up in the parking lot of the Kamiah Community Credit Union at 3:30 p.m. with the parade starting at 4 p.m. Free hot chocolate will be provided by the Kooskia Rebekahs following the parade. This will all be followed by the tree lighting ceremony. Both communities are sponsoring a sharing tree. Sign up soon, deadlines are coming.
