The Thanksgiving meal has been barely eaten and the leftovers put away into the refrigerator. The rivalry week football games have not even kicked off and some communities are hearing the jingling of bells; a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus; and the community tree is ready to be lit.

This year, communities are in a time crunch, as the Thanksgiving holiday is a week later than normal. While many communities may traditionally light their tree the first weekend of December, this year it appears more than ever one holiday has bumped head on into the next.

The city of Massillon has a head start on all Stark County communities as they held their holiday parade and tree lighting on Nov. 23 at Duncan Plaza. The rest of the county is scheduling their yuletide extravaganza after the turkey holiday.

Plain Township:
Plain Township gets the holiday festivities started the day after Thanksgiving. While some people continue to shop in the Black Friday Shopping frenzy, the township will light their tree at Diamond Park on Nov. 29 at 6 p.m.

The festivities will include food trucks, local merchants with tables set up and a few bon fires lit up around the park to keep families warm. Fun and games will be on tap to keep the whole family entertained.  By time the evening concludes, the lights in the park will be lit up for the holiday season.

The city of Louisville continues the weekend celebration. The city will light up their Christmas tree on Dec . 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 308 S. Mill St.  The light up event is sponsored by the Louisville Chamber of Commerce.

The fun, family-filled event will start in the daylight as the sun is starting to set and conclude in the dark evening night. Families who attend will be able to roast hot dogs and marsh mellows before the tree is lit up.

City of Canton:
The city of Canton's Lite Up Downtown will take place on Dec. 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  The event runs for 12 city blocks with entertainment and the lighting of the Christmas tree at the town square. Of course, Santa and Mrs. Clause will make an appearance.

Families heading downtown will have the opportunity to ice skate, patronize local restaurants, enjoy food, visit down merchants for gift ideas and enjoy walking around the city. This event has something for every member of the family. Bring the family, join the fun and enjoy. The evening is capped by a fireworks display.

Jackson Township:
Jackson Township rounds out the community celebrations and Christmas tree lightings. The residents of Jackson will usher in the holiday season on Dec. 8 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at North Park. In addition to lighting the Christmas tree, residents will be able to enjoy food, hot chocolate and light entertainment.

If you have the time and energy, mark your calendars and go out and view every community's holiday celebration. Take the spirit of the season with you around Stark County and enjoy.

The property, which rented for $1,500 per month.  The home is a four bedroom, two and half bath home sitting on a beautiful corner lot.

Pikus said the market remains strong for owners looking to rent their property. The North Canton market continues to grow for a variety of reasons. Location plays a role in the strong property management market but the economy dictates homeowners are relocating for work; downsizing; and using their current property to make money.

"North Canton is the ideal setting for renters," said Pikus. "A nationally ranked city, wellness and a top notch school district make this the ideal situation for renters."
