Join us for our annual holiday festival and tree lighting ceremony and kick off your holiday season. The holiday market returns with crafts, holiday items, food, beer and wine available for purchase. Participants will enjoy sleigh rides, live entertainment, activities and more*. The holiday would not be complete without a visit from Santa, so be sure to bring your camera. Join us outside at 5:00 PM by the holiday tree at Village Hall circle for the lighting ceremony.
