The holidays are officially hitting Oak Forest Saturday, Dec. 8, as the city will hold its annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony on Central Avenue and at City Hall.
The parade, which steps off at Oak Forest High School at 11 a.m., will feature local organizations, churches, groups and more. Once the parade ends, Mayor Hank Kuspa will preside over the tree lighting.
Following the parade and tree lighting, don't forget to stop at Oak Forest Fire Station #1 to donate a pint of blood to the Battle of the Badges Community Blood Drive, too.
