It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Yorktown.
The town of Yorktown Parks and Recreation Department along with the Yorktown Heights Fire Company will host its First Annual Holiday Lights Parade on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 6 p.m.
There will be a special appearance by Santa at the end of the parade.
The parade will start at Town Hall's municipal parking lot located at 363 Underhill Avenue, then make a right onto Underhill Avenue and continue to the Yorktown Height fire house station. The parade will then make a left onto Commerce Street and a right onto Veteran’s Road where it will end at the Jack DeVito Memorial Field behind the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center.
The town of Yorktown will continue its festivities with the lighting of the Christmas tree, holiday singing by the Lakeland and Yorktown Girl Scouts and with the movie "The Santa Clause" sponsored by the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce.
A new community service award, which was established in memory of Yorktown's beloved Randy Zapakin, will be given to the Yorktown Girl Scout troops during the Holiday Lights Parade Spectacular.
