"The event evolved over those years with various business people taking charge and putting on events," Delaney said. "Although the players have changed, there is still plenty of excitement among businesses all along Delaware Avenue and in all of Bethlehem."
Delaney said this is the ninth year that the Four Corners area has celebrated the holidays on the first weekend in December.
"The message is support your local businesses. These are the businesses that support our community all year long by sponsoring teams, helping with fundraisers and of course paying a huge share of the taxes," Delaney said.
"Local businesses are the backbone of any community and this year especially they need everyone's support."
There will be a Christmas open house following the parade at Delmar Reformed Church, 386 Delaware Ave., with cookies and hot chocolate after the arrival of Santa Claus.
