Christmas time returns to Lockport

Niagara Gazette — It’s that time of year again.

Saturday will mark the return of the annual Light Up Lockport Christmastime in the City event, which will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. all over downtown.

The day begins with a free showing of “Elf” at 10 a.m. at the Palace Theatre on East Avenue. Attendees are asked to bring a canned food to donate.

After the movie ends at about 11:30 a.m., the Coloring Contest awards will be handed out at the Palace.

Then at noon, Mrs. Claus will be stopping by Pape Leo’s on Main Street for story time and a free slice of pizza. Her husband will be taking pictures at that time until 4 p.m. at the Dale Association on Ontario Street.

A petting zoo will be located in the Canal Street parking lot across from the Dale Association.

Face painting, cookie decorating, tours of the fire station at city hall and finger printing by Lockport Police Capt. Mike Neithe will be on hand at the Dale Association. Lockport Lions will sponsor an eye exam from noon until 3 p.m. at the Dale as well.

From noon until 4 p.m. folks can take a horse and cart ride to the Dale Association, then to Emmanuel Methodist Church on East Avenue for crafts and a view of the Nativity displays. There will be some cookies and cocoa as well.

The Lockport Public Library will also have crafts for children from noon until 3 p.m.

At the end of the day at 11:30 p.m. at the Historic Palace Theatre, the Christmas tree will be lit with the assistance of “magic dust.” Coloring contest prize winners will throw the magic dust to light the tree.
