The Berlin Area Merchants invite you to join them the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 25th. Help them celebrate the start of this Christmas season with a Live Nativity Parade and Candle Lighting Ceremony. There will be hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies at the cost of a donation toward shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. The Live Nativity Parade starts at 5:45pm in the Berlin Village Gift Barn and concludes at the stage in the center of town, where the Candle Lighting Ceremony will be held. Larry Kaufman will also read the Christmas Story, and Jeff Polen will lead Christmas Carols.
