Pleasant Valley Holiday Festival (Aired November 30 and December 1, 2019)

Pleasant Valley Recreation Director Sandy Coe and local businessman Frank Mazzella
visit RadioRotary to tell about the full-day celebration that is the Pleasant Valley Festival
of Lights. The event, which combines food and Santa, pets and Santa, a parade and
Santa, and many other holiday traditions, started a few years ago with a simple lighting
of the Town Christmas tree. Today it runs from a breakfast (with Santa) starting at 8 in
the morning and concluding about 12 hours later with a parade followed by hot
chocolate and cookies at the Fire House. Aside from Main Street–site of the parade of
floats, fire trucks, walkers, and Santa in a horse-drawn carriage–the main action is at
three important locations in Pleasant Valley: the Fire House, the Library, and the Mill
Site Historical Museum. Starting with a pancake breakfast, continuing with cookie
sales, a chili cook-off, food trucks, and lots of hot chocolate, it is easy to spend the day
in downtown PV, enjoying readings and encounters with various animals in addition to
the main event, the parade.
