Easton to move peace candle-lighting to Small Business Saturday

Easton's annual lighting of its massive holiday peace candle is moving from Black Friday to Small Business Saturday. Easton has embraced the day after the holiday-shopping-mad Black Friday, which was designated as a day to patronize local mom and pops in 2010. Local business people in Easton supported the move to Saturday, Nov. 28, said Easton Main Street Initiative Manager Kim Kmetz. It turns the tradition into an additional draw on for shopping downtown. Also, instead of 8 p.m. on the night after Thanksgiving, the city will push up the timing to 6 p.m., making it earlier for young children to attend. blandauer@mcall.com 610-820-6533
