TUBA CITY, Ariz. - District 5 County Supervisor Lena Fowler, Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC) and various community members are organizing a Holiday Light Parade for the Tuba City-Moenkopi area that will take place on Friday, Dec. 10 at 6 p.m. There is no entry fee for the parade. Line-up will start at Tuba City High School and will end at the TCRHCC Old Hospital parking lot where community members are invited to decorate several Christmas trees that will be on display throughout the month.

Upper Moenkopi Governor William Charley has generously agreed to help purchase the Christmas trees. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy free hot chocolate, apple cider and cookies. The To'Nanees'Dizi Boys and Girls Club and other local schools will be creating ornaments for the trees.
