HOLLEY – A Fancher-Hulberton-Murray Fire Truck is covered with colorful Christmas lights as it makes its way around the Public Square in the village Saturday evening for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and Parade.

The parade featured trucks decorated with Christmas lights.


Here, the village’s Electric Department truck is decked-out for the holidays.


The back of one of the fire trucks featured a waving Santa inflatable.


Holley Mayor Brian Sorochty reads off the names of those remembered with Memory Bulbs on the 2016 Village Tree. The names and donors were read just prior to the lighting of the tree in the Public Square. Sorochty said it was an honor for him to take part in the ceremony for the first time as mayor.


Residents gather in the Public Square in Holley to await the lighting of the village’s holiday tree.
