Lyndhurst holiday lighting event is Dec. 4; Santa will travel the streets of Mayfield Heights Dec. 12, South Euclid Dec. 13

SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — Because residents can’t come to see Santa Claus at South Euclid city hall this year, Santa will come to the residents.

The city, as a way of bringing holiday cheer to residents, will hold its first “South Euclid Holiday Parade” from 2-4 p.m. Dec. 13. “We’ve mapped out a route throughout the city we think will reach the majority of residents,” said Community Development Coordinator Daniel Subwick. “Santa Claus and a couple of his holiday pals in costume will be going down many of our streets and they will be passing out gifts to residents as they pass by. There will be a special treat for the first 100 residents.

“The parade will be going through most neighborhoods in the city, but we’re not able to go down every street.”

Subwick said that residents, as the Santa parade passes, are asked to follow safety measures, including

New camping fees in effect at state parks starting Dec. 10 | Outdoors

Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) will adopt a new fee structure and site-type simplification that will go into effect Dec. 10, which will include a $2 increase to the motor vehicle entrance fee, which will rise from $5 to $7.

The fee structure and campsite-type simplifications are designed to make the reservation process easier by limiting the amount of site types from which to choose. In effect, the number of campsite options has been reduced to three: Basic, Electric, and Full Hook-Up. For example, the term Serviced Site has been eliminated and replaced with either Electric Site or Full Hook-Up Site, making it easier to identify what the ideal campsite is for all customers.

This also means a fee increase across the board, ranging from 8-16 percent per site. It should also be noted that the new fees are now tax inclusive and more transparent to the customer.
