REEDLEY – Christmas in the Park lit up Reedley Friday night as the community gathered to celebrate the tree lighting and annual Electrical Farm Equipment Parade.

Put on by the Greater Reedley Chamber of Commerce at Pioneer Park in downtown Reedley, the event on Dec. 1 featured food trucks, retail vendor booths, crafts, train and pony rides and the opportunity to take pictures with Santa. During the Electrical Farm Equipment Parade sponsored by the Reedley Lions Club, hundreds of residents lined the street to enjoy the equipment, floats and marching bands. 

This year’s parade theme was “The Music of Christmas;” local band Three Fabulous Enchantments took home the Parade “Sweepstakes” trophy for their float that judges felt embodied the theme well. First place went to the Adventist Health Reedley Birth Center, second place went to the Reedley College Forestry Club and third place went to Reedley Ace Hardware.
