Even flooding cannot dampen the holiday spirit in Owego, which is gearing up for its fifth annual "Lights on the River" festival.

"Lights on the River" typically attracts several hundred visitors to the downtown area, packing village stores and restaurants. The family-friendly event is scheduled to run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, December 2nd. Guests can expect dazzling Christmas lights along the bridge, heart-warming children's choirs, dancers, ice sculptors, horse and wagon rides, a classic car light parade, a visit from Santa Claus, and more. Refreshments, including hot chocolate and cookies, will be available around the village. The Tioga County Historical Society Museum will offer its "O'Tannenbaum" display of more than 100 decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. This spectacular downtown event will conclude with a fireworks show.

The festival is sponsored by Owego businesses and clubs, including those who were devastated by the Sept. 7-8 flooding that inundated the village. Business owners went to work immediately to get their storefronts and restaurants open in time for the holiday season. Attendees are welcome to bring non-perishable food items to benefit the Tioga County Rural Ministry pantry. Donations can be made at Haircolor Cafe, 185 Front St., with donors receiving a $5 coupon toward any service at the salon. For more information and a complete schedule of Owego's "Lights on the River" Festival, call (800) 671-7772 or visit www.lightsontheriver.com.
