Lincoln Avenue will be closed from Fifth to 11th streets at about 4:15 p.m. Saturday for the fourth annual Merry Mainstreet celebration, which starts at 5 p.m. The event starts with a parade at 5:30 and is followed by caroling and a Santa-themed pub crawl.
Mainstreet Steamboat still is accepting entries for the parade. Entries may include vehicles, walkers, carolers, pets or bands, but all must be lit in some way.

There is no entry fee to participate. To register for the parade, call Tracy at 970-846-1800.
