It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving weekend in Craig without the sirens, twinkling lights and special visit from a certain North Pole guest as part of the annual Parade of Lights. “It was awesome, as always,” said Ed Corriveau, a lifelong Craig resident who watched the parade stroll through downtown Saturday night. “Cold and a little shorter than in the past, but awesome.” Corriveau and his sister, Heather, said they have been going to the Parade of Lights for more than 30 years, but this was the first year there wasn’t a defined theme for the annual event sponsored by the Craig Lions Club and Downtown Business Association. Kristi Shepherd, a Lions Club member and parade chairwoman for the eighth straight year, explained the “Pick Your Own Christmas” theme.
