Santa arrives for the Tree Lighting on November 26 from 5pm-7pm, so be on the Village Green to greet him and don't forget your Christmas list! There will be hot chocolate, cider and cookies for the kids, as well as gifts.
You'll want to get your house decorated early for the Christmas Decorating Contest. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes for businesses and homes.
The Merchant Open House is where downtown businesses light up their stores and welcome you inside their warm and cozy shops. This will take place November 26 from 12pm-6pm and November 27 from noon-4pm. Enjoy your dinner at one of the restaurants, which have added holiday specials to their menus.
As you shop and browse the downtown shops, carolers from local churches will be filling the air with beautiful music. To complete the holiday atmosphere, chestnuts will be roasting and horse drawn carriage rides will transport you up and down Hancock Street. What a perfect setting!
