Major, Spike, Oliver and Quincy are chomping at the bit to meet you. Along with their owners Tim and Betty Bielenberg, these majestic draft horses will be decked out in their holiday finery at Sublimity’s Sixth Annual Christmas in the Country Light Parade. Tim and Betty have been involved in the parade since it began. Rides range from 30 to 45 minutes long, with different routes taken through town. The couple own seven carriages and wagons. Kicking off on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 6 p.m., the parade will start on E. Main Street at the Sublimity Middle School. Then it will travel South on Pine, West on Church, North on Center to Starr. It will conclude at D&W Automotive. Following the parade, all are invited to come to Early Settlers Park, between Sublimity City Hall and Sublimity Fire Station, for caroling and watch as Santa and his friends light the City Christmas tree. Afterwards, Santa will give out candy canes inside of the fire station.
