Carbondale’s Annual Lights Fantastic Parade, the largest lighted parade in Illinois, takes place this Saturday, starting at 6 p.m. Downtown parking will start closing at 3 p.m. and detours around the downtown area will go up at 5 p.m. Downtown will also host a cookie walk, with several local businesses, including us, serving cookies from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. We will actually have cookies and hot cider all day, as well as 25% off all action figures. See you Saturday.
A customer of the store lost your wallet in the vicinity of Walnut and Poplar. It was found in the parking lot behind St. Francis Xavier Church and had either a Castle or Iron Rations Card tucked in it. The person who found it turned it over to the Carbondale Police Department and you can claim it there.
