Christmas Activities

Get in the holiday spirit by taking part in the Town’s great festivities! As you participate in the activities, be sure to do your holiday shopping at the Christmas Market and all of our great shops, stores, and boutiques. See a list of the Town's Christmas activities below

Hand-painted holiday ornaments will be displayed throughout the Town. 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!
