The day after Thanksgiving, USF sponsored the annual Light Up the Holidays parade in downtown Joliet, with friends and families of USF riding on and walking alongside the university’s float. USF’s mascot, Bernie the St. Bernard, served as Grand Marshal and led the parade. Prior to the parade, USF President Dr. Arvid Johnson joined Joliet’s mayor, Bob O’Dekirk, in lighting the City of Joliet’s Christmas tree in Van Buren Plaza.
