Wausau kicks of holidays with Friday night festivities
WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The City of Wausau is kicking off this year's holiday cheer with several festive displays. Wausau's Annual Holiday Parade marched down Stewart Avenue Friday evening showing off a display of colorful lights and themes. Another holiday event local shops are taking part in is this year's window display. Several stores in the downtown area competed in the event, decorating their windows showing off a theme to represent their place of business.
"The winners are really determined by via two components that includes a people's choice component. So people can get really involved in voting for their favorite window or display," said Dawn Follendorf of the Wausau River District.
The second part is determined by a group of community judges that will tour the displays next week. The event started Friday and continues through December 10.
