It might only be a day after Thanksgiving yet, but it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
At least it soon will be in all three Star communities, as officials prepare for celebrations kicking off the holiday season.
• In Delmont, the annual Holiday Jingle Night will be 5 to 7 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, at the Delmont Volunteer Fire Company hall, 2360 Route 66. The evening will include a visit from Santa.
• In Export, the annual Light Up Night will be held downtown at 7 p.m. Dec. 1. This holiday season will also include a storefront decorating contest, sponsored by the J.M. Hall Jr. Community Trust. Entries are due by Dec. 1. For more, email Councilwoman Melanie Litz at email@example.com.
• In Murrysville, the annual Night of Lights will be held rain or shine on Dec. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Town Square and the First United Methodist Church at 3916 Old William Penn Highway.
Because of the event, Old William Penn Highway will be closed from the intersection of Sardis Road and Vincent Hall Road to McCloy Avenue between the hours of 5 and 8:30 p.m. Police will be present to aid in routing traffic and assist with parking for the event.
