Good morning.

A little more snow may fall early today, which will feature stiff winds and a high temperature of 38 degrees. Here's a look at some events happening around town today:

Tonight is the Village of Lancaster's annual Christmasville Parade, which starts at 6 p.m. on Central Ave. and also features a tree-lighting ceremony.  The crowd can also check out the popular animatronic holiday displays that once graced the windows of AM&A's department store, which now have a new home in the village's Central Ave. business district downtown.

Santa is coming to the Broadway Market. Bring the kids and catch him as he makes his way down Broadway in a horse and carriage today at 11:00 a.m. and take home a special picture with him. Santa will be at the Market every Saturday until Christmas and from Dec. 18 though Christmas Eve!

Pick up some crafts handmade by local artisans today at the Parkside Holiday Craft Show in Jewett Hall at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Jewett Parkway. It runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society hosts the One-Stop Buffalo Book Signing today from noon until 2 p.m. The event, designed for shoppers looking for personalized gifts in a relaxed atmosphere, features more than two dozen local authors selling and signing their books.

Last but not least, tonight is the World's Largest Disco at the Convention Center. But if you don't have tickets, you'll have to wait until next year to put on your bell-bottoms and dance to the Bee Gees. The event is sold out.
