This Thursday November 30th the Village of Johnson City will celebrate the start of the Holiday Season with their annual Holiday Parade beginning at 7pm. Details here.

My favorite time of the year is Christmas, and the many decorative lights and characters that are associated with it.

I love being a part of all the parades in our community they all do a fantastic job, one of my favorites in the Johnson City Holiday parade that is the only parade held at night.

I see many people that I have known throughout the years and meet new listeners to our radio station, we do it to show our support and appreciation of our community.

We have many listeners in Johnson City and the surrounding area and its nice to celebrate the start of the Christmas Holiday
