"Where everyone in Granite City comes to find out what's
going on in Granite City"
Merry Christmas Granite City!
Out come the Christmas lights, wreaths are being mounted
on front doors, mistletoe is in short supply and packages are
being tied up
with ribbons, waiting to go under the Christmas tree.
Santa is in his cozy cabin waiting for the children to climb on
his lap and tell him what they want.
It's Christmas time in our wonderful hometown!

On Saturday, November 22, Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived in
Granite City via the 13th Annual Santa's Avenue Holiday Parade.
In spite of the cold weather, many local residents lined Madison Avenue
to greet Santa. There were ninety entries in this year's parade, which
ended at Wilson Park where there was the Annual Chili Cook Off.
We offer our thanks to Mrs. Judy Whittaker, Mayor Ed Hagnauer and all
who were instrumental in organizing another successful parade for the
residents of Granite City to demonstrate their pride in our wonderful
community. Until next year......
