Santa Claus parades into town next weekend

Funds for the white lights along Reid Avenue were raised by the Downtown Merchants Association through a community yard sale last month and a cake walk during Halloween’s Ghosts on the Coast event.

Reid Avenue businesses will be open late that Friday and offering deals to patrons while local musicians will be stationed on street corners to entertain passersby.

The celebration continues Saturday with members of the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School Band of Gold playing holidays tunes in ensembles around downtown.

A special holiday edition of the Salt-Air Farmer’s Market will be held in City Commons Park beginning at 9 a.m. ET, featuring fresh produce and local vendors with homemade holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.

The market will be extended until 4 p.m. ET.

“I would urge all the residents of Port St. Joe to come out on December sixth and seventh and support their community,” said John Parker, volunteer coordinator of the Farmer’s Market. “This will be a great event.”

At noon ET, the Junior Service League’s annual chili cook-off begins at Sailor’s Cove near the Haughty Heron.
