The countdown is on, and it's not a countdown to Christmas we're talking about, it's Cloquet's Home for the Holidays celebration Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
It's time to get creative, Cloquet-area organizations, businesses and civic-minded folks. There's a parade coming and a window decorating contest, and those things don't come together overnight.
Sponsored by Cloquet Ford Chrysler and Members Cooperative Credit Union, the two-day event includes activities Friday and Saturday - as well as three nights of the County Seat Theater's "Christmas Belles" play - culminating with the Santa's Home for the Holidays Parade at 6 p.m. Saturday. People can sign up in advance by visiting www.santashomefortheholidays.com or just show up at 5 p.m. on parade day.
Those who want to be included in the window judging should fill out the form the website and email it to
firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off at one of the sponsor businesses.
