Mission lights up for the holidays Friday night

Mission’s annual Holiday Lights and Festive Sights will kickoff tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the corner of Woodson and Johnson Drive and culminate with musical fireworks at 8:15 p.m.

The celebration includes Christmas movies at Mission theater, a holiday shop, music and kid’s activities. The Rushton PTA will sponsor cookie decorating and a holiday shop. At 6 p.m. the Mission holiday lights will go on and Santa and Mrs. Claus pull into town at 6:30 p.m. for free visits.

Even though it is predicted to be a rather balmy evening for the last day of November, hot chocolate and s’mores will be free for those who need a push into the holiday mood.
