When you think Christmas parade, don't forget Christmas on Main Street, a family focused event designed to enhance the season's festivities.
Christmas on Main Street is put on by the Downtown Revitalization Association and takes place â€” on Main Street, obviously â€” immediately following the Big Spring Herald Lighted Christmas Parade, set for the evening of Saturday, Dec. 7.
â€śChildren will have an opportunity to visit with Santa, get their photo taken and get a free gift,â€ť said Debbie Rupard, DRA secretary.
October is National Fire Prevention Month and the Big Spring Fire Department will be spreading the message of fire safety to this area's smallest residents.
Beginning Monday, BSFD Fire Marshal Carl Condray and others in the department will visit area elementary schools to give students practical lessons on fire safety.
