November 30 – Christmas Kick-Off (Street Closures)

At Christmas Kick-Off, we welcome Santa as he arrives by fire truck and visit him in his Santa Station under the red tent (City Square).  Carols will be sung and played by community choirs and bands, and the Smiley Family Band will be back to entertain the crowd.  Chestnuts will be roasting and lights will be sparkling from the community Christmas trees, decorated by local businesses and service groups.  Spread Christmas cheer as you hitch a ride on a horse-drawn wagon!  Warm up with a hot beverage and bite to eat from one of our fabulous downtown restaurants or concessions set up for the evening by various local non-profits.  At 8:00 p.m. the evening’s finale begins as fireworks light up the sky from the roof of City Hall.
