Welcome to our photo album of Junction
City's unique and continuing events.
Some of the stories here here are regular events in Junction City (like the Light Parade) and are updated each time they occur. Others (like the day we moved the original Junction City jail) are one-time events. So grab yourself another cup of coffee or some bottled water and enjoy!
The Light Parade
This is surely one of the most popular annual events here in Junction City. Rain, cold, snow, it doesn't matter. Hundreds of families line the downtown streets to enjoy the phantasmagoria of lights. This year's theme was "Christmas in Whoville" - which accounts for all the Grinches! And this year, we even got Elvis! The Christmas King lives!
