Despite frigid temperatures and wind chill making it feel just below zero, hundreds turned out for the event that began with the lighted parade.
Lighting of the Antelope County Courthouse followed the parade before the crowd ventured to the American Legion. Carhart Lumber Company sponsored a free hotdog feed featuring Santa Claus, games from the Neligh-Oakdale FBLA and the Chamber Cash Booth.
The Chamber put over $500 worth of Neligh Big Bucks inside with nearly much of it given out during the event. The Big Bucks are good as cash at nearly any Chamber business. For those wanting to give Big Bucks as gifts or bonuses, they're available for purchase at the Chamber/Economic Development office, Pinnacle Bank and Hilltop Drugs Etc.
