CANTON — Canton will again be celebrating Light Night this year, however, things will be organized differently from previous years.
Due to COVID restrictions, Santa cannot meet children in the lobby of Chemung Canal bank. Instead, Santa will be making his rounds around town to greet everyone but still keep the social distancing in place. Chamber asks residents to watch/listen for Santa on your street and wave from your door and step outside onto your porch/steps/yard to wave.
Chamber is asking local businesses to light up their storefronts for the event. For those who do not have lights available to them, they are asked to contact a chamber member. This is for all businesses in the downtown business district area, not just chamber members. Contact Amy or Rachel if you need some lights.
A live nativity is planned for Friday evening as well, at the Main Street park, provided by the local churches.
