The lineup for the annual Christmas Parade of Lights has been announced by the parade committee. The parade is presented by State Bank of Reeseville.

The parade will begin Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Main and Water streets. It will travel east on Main Street to Dewey Avenue when it disbands.

Featured in the parade will be Jack and Jill Frost, and filling those roles will be Jaxon Martin, 8, and Braeleigh Godfroy, 6. Members of Jack’s court of honor will be Milo Soldner, Shawn Ireland and Hunter Bricco. Members of Jill’s court will be Lorelai Wallace, Sydney Gates, Sophia Witterman and Katelyn Clark.
