It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

(The Hoot photo by J. Romano) Employees with the Columbia City Electrical Department are busy installing the seasonal holiday decor around Columbia City. The fair weather and warm temperatures are making the annual Christmas decorating much more pleasant than it normally would be this time of year.

According to City Electric Department superintendent Shawn Lickey, crews will be busy with lights and greenery and decorating the city in hopes of having all projects completed in time for the Whitley County Lighted Christmas Parade on Friday, November 24 at 6 p.m. in downtown Columbia City.
