We're just over a week away from the annual Albany Christmas parade, and this year organizers need your help.
The Festival of Christmas Trees began Friday in Sycamore. Their goal is to spread holiday cheer by giving back to the community.
Local businesses spent Friday preparing for their busiest shopping day of the year -- Small Business Saturday.
