5 ways to ring in the holidays in the Stateline

Update: The Light Up the Parks Holiday Parade has been rescheduled due to the weather forecast. The 2014 parade will be held Nov. 30. The story has been updated below.

With Thanksgiving on Thursday, the holiday season begins in earnest. For many of us, that means long shopping trips to load up on gifts, but it doesn’t all have to be all work and no play.

There is no better way to ring in the holiday season than to get out and experience the great seasonal events going on throughout the Stateline. Yes, meteorologists agree it will be cold, but this time of year relies on the warmth of family, community and hot chocolate. These things can be found in abundance at our top five holiday events this year.

Cold War memories

BELOIT -- More than 1 million Germans celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall last Sunday, marking the symbolic end of the long Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.


The wall, built in 1961 at the height of the Cold War, divided Berlin until coming down Nov. 9, 1989, paving the way for German reunification a year later.
