It’s a weekend filled with activities in Central Oregon. What can hold five tons, including a jolly old fat man in a red suit? Well, it will be in the 9th Annual Night Light Parade Saturday night at 5 in Prineville. “We have a rather outstanding transport for Santa Claus. You would have to be here to believe it. It was made by the National Guard folks. They have been working on it for sometime, so you can imagine their skill set in making a float.” Bill Gowen is the CEO of the Prineville / Crook County Chamber Of Commerce. Other events include “Wreaths Across America” at Deschutes Memorial Gardens. Green Christmas wreaths are laid on veterans graves.   You can take five cans of food to the Sisters Drug Store and get a free photo with Old Saint Nick. The Humane Society of Redmond will have a “Furry Friends Food Drive” Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at four different locations. Motorcyclists of Central Oregon will help out Santa by having their Central Oregon Toy Run, Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
