SLIDESHOW: Town of Niagara's Electric Light Parade

TOWN OF NIAGARA — Saturday's Electric Lights Parade dazzled onlookers Saturday night on Military Road.

And fittingly, on the 200th anniversary of the Town of Niagara, Marsh’s General Store, the town’s oldest business, took part in what has become one of the town’s biggest annual events — the Electric Lights Parade on Military Road. 

 
“This is our first time participating,” said Pam Marsh, part of the third generation of the Marsh family to own and operate the gas station and convenience store located at 7535 Packard Road. “We’ve always attended but never took part. We’re looking to put our name out there and hopefully have a good time and a few laughs along the parade route.”

 
Now in its eighth year, the Electric Lights Parade has been held each year just after Halloween as a way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
