While the East Lyme Light Parade is celebrating its 25th year in 2013, the Groton Holiday Lights Parade is no slouch either, marking its 15th annual event on Saturday.
What can you expect from the event run by the Groton Business Association? Lots of illumination, naturally, on all manner of cars and floats and marchers and music-makers.
Once the parade makes its way down Route 1, Santa Claus lights the tree on the green behind the Groton Shopping Plaza. And he'll take photos with kids, too.
Steve Elci and Friends will perform after the procession, and refreshments and a small gift for kids will be available, donated by Grader Jewelers.
