Holiday and Christmas Activities

The holidays are upon us, and there’s no better way to prepare for the season than taking part in the Town’s great festivities! Christmastime is a favorite time of year for children of all ages. As you participate in the activities, be sure to do your holiday shopping at all of our great shops, stores, and boutiques.

20161114_171406_resizedHand-painted holiday ornaments will be displayed throughout the Town this holiday season. These ornaments are painted by local artists and represent various aspects of our community. They will hang on light poles in Downtown, be placed in front of businesses, and will line Main Street. Keep your eyes out for these great holiday decorations!
