GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - We still haven't celebrated Halloween yet, but one local organization is already hard at work preparing for the holiday season.
Greater Lafayette Commerce is taking applications for float entries for the 2013 Christmas Parade on Sunday, December 8. The deadline for entries is Friday, November 8. GLC's Erin Nelson said this year's theme is "Over the River and Through the Woods."
They also still need drivers for all of the parade's Snow Princes and Princesses.
If you want to help with the parade you can either contact GLC by calling (765) 742-4044 or filling out a form on their website.
The parade starts at 2:00 p.m. and travels along Main Street from 10th Street to Riehle Plaza.
On Saturday, December 7 downtown Lafayette will be transformed into scenes from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
A shooting on Lafayette's south side is under investigation.
It's been nearly a month since a tornado damaged Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School, giving faculty the task of helping students transition to their new surroundings.
Donations are being accepted to help around 300 seniors receive a holiday gift.
