Yankton Parade of Lights and Tree Lighting

Yankton Parade of Lights and Tree Lighting

Last night the Meridian District of Yankton hosted the Yankton Parade of Lights and the Tree Lighting Ceremony with fireworks.

Luke Youmans, the city’s Aquatics, Recreation and Special Events Manager, talks about the participants in the parade…

The parade started with the Yankton Police Department battling The Grinch, and concluded with the Yankton Fire Department escorting Old Saint Nick, himself.

Youmans invites everyone down to the tree…

At the conclusion of the parade, Mayor Stephanie Moser led the assembled crowd in the tree lighting and admired the fireworks display, while Santa and Mrs. Clause talked to a large gathering of children.
