A set of sisters tell Santa what they want last Friday night at the United Bank in Columbus.

A sweet night for Santa and holiday cheer

The Special K Ranch and Stage FX took home the top honors in last Friday night’s Parade of Lights in Columbus.
A total of 17 parade entries entertained hundreds of people along Pike Avenue, in keeping with the theme “Snowman, Snowflakes and Stars, Oh My!” Three winners were chosen in two different categories: Clubs and Organizations and Commercial. First place winners received $100, second place received $500 and third place received $25, said parade organizer Mary Blankenship.
The winners were as follows:
Clubs & Organizations
-First: Special K Ranch
-Second: Beartooth Ramblers
-Third: Stillwater Range Riders
-First: Stage FX
-Second: Stillwater Billings Clinic
-Third: R & H Concrete
Blankenship said special thanks goes to KB Construction, Steve Defrate and the Stillwater Billings Clinic for the prize donations.
Beartooth Ford served up the annual chili supper prior to the parade, which this year benefitted the BackPacks program.
In Absarokee, a parade, spaghetti dinner, holiday bazaar and gingerbread house competition filled the weekend while Nye held its annual Nye Gets Lit! See photos from these events on page 6.
