Skies Clear - Mostly - For Christmas In Village

LA MESA -- The skies cleared just in time for Friday night's installment of Christmas In The Village to get underway.
Fire pits were fired up and the modest but heartwarming parade, featuring the entire new La Mesa City Council and honoring Vietnam Veterans, made its way down the street.
The Helix Highlanders were there and the Lady In White, a sort of startling feature that has become a traditional presence at this event each year. She and John Vigil, the Merchants Association guru, led the parade down the decorated street.

The event continues tonight in what are expected to be drier conditions. (Let's call Friday a "wet run.") Pre-parade starts at 4:30 p.m. with the kickoff parade at 5 on La Mesa Boulevard in the Village.

I hope people know that there are also attractions and shops open on the west side of La Mesa boulevard too. While we don't have the same lights up above the street, we are anxious to say hello and welcome you to the other side of the tracks!
