The Prince and Princess of the Escanaba Christmas parade have been selected. Seven-year-old Logan Fields and six-year-old Lily Niles will be the official greeters of Santa this year.
The drawing took place live this morning on WDBC.
The Prince and Princess lead the parade as the official grand marshals and enjoy a one-on-one meal with Santa after.
Children remember their personal Santa experience for years to come.
"It's a joyful time and it's a memory,â?? said Bonnie Wenick-Kutz parade organizer. â??I still hear from people who, you know, twenty years ago they were the prince or the princess and that they still remember it as such a fun thing and that they felt so special."
The Christmas parade begins at 7 p.m. this Friday, starting at the Civic Center, then heads east down Ludington St., ending near City Hall.
