This weekend, Lock Haven kicked off the holiday season with a bang! Families throughout the community came out to celebrate with the help of our local businesses. Thank you to all the businesses and the City of Lock Haven this year for hosting such fun events. Top left, children run to grab the most candy from the parade floats.
