Hometown Holiday

Take in the magical sights and sounds of our holiday walk when Santa arrives by firetruck to help us light the giant Christmas tree in front of Village Hall. Join us for free activities, entertainment and fabulous open houses at our festive shops and restaurants, like La Buona Vita – our main event sponsor – as they keep their doors open late that night to celebrate with you. There’s plenty of free parking in the West End, too! Hop aboard a trolley and take a ride around the village to all of the FREE parking areas!
