The GREAT TREE is back! It is 27 foot tall, a sight that will WOW children and adults alike. Friday is BLUE Friday, when all merchants will be offering discounts and the downtown area will be filled with live entertainment throughout the day. A full day of fun begins on Saturday when Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive at approximately 9:30 a.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will then be in the holiday parade immediately following their arrival. After the parade stop by the park and have your picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Mr. & Mrs. Clause will be in the gazebo and looking forward to talking to all the children.

  • Food vendors will surround the park
  • Gingerbread House Contest
  • Window Decorating Contest

We are so very pleased to announce the headliner
