Two big parades are planned in the valley this weekend to get you in the spirit of Christmas. The first is Saturday night, it's the 24th annual Lighted Farm Implement Parade in Sunnyside, it starts at 6:30. Then Sunday, it's the 13th annual Lighted Christmas Parade in in downtown Yakima and it starts at 5:30. The highlight of the Yakima parade will be Santa Claus who'll be riding in a new mustang this year. He'll join everyone after the parade at the Millennium Plaza for the annual Christmas tree lighting and hot cocoa. The two parades are the largest in the valley during the holiday season.

The Yakima Christmas tree is being installed downtown today at the Millennium Plaza.
