NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Friday night marked the first night of The Lincoln County Historical Museum’s drive-through Christmas Village. A tradition that has gone on for about five years brings Christmas joy again this year. About 45 businesses from around town acted as Santa’s helpers by stringing Christmas lights around the village. All you need is a car and this activity is COVID-19 safe. The museum has its own radio station playing Christmas songs to help get you into the holiday spirit
