The Tinseltown Christmas Parade and Holiday Celebration, presented by The Resource Center, will again feature a spectacular downtown fireworks display thanks to a generous event donation by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. Community residents watching the parade downtown on Friday, December 4, will be able to see the fireworks as they are lit from the top of the Spring Street parking ramp at approximately 8:00 pm.

“We are very honored and thankful to have CRCF involved in the parade and community year after year,” said Edwin Rodriguez, events and marketing associate for the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation. “We wouldn’t be able to do this event without The Resource Center as our title sponsor and CRCF as our fireworks sponsor,” said Rodriguez.
