Annual Candlelight Processional & Lighting of Community Christmas Tree

Festival Details - "Annual Candlelight Processional & Lighting of Community Christmas Tree"...

The festivities start when hundreds gather, all with lighted candles and song sheets in hand, and proceed down Main Street singing classic Christmas carols along the way. As they pass by, many of the downtown businesses will illuminate their holiday windows - some for the first time. This creates a wave of lights, and is one the most beautiful sights of the entire season.

At 5:30 pm, Mr. and Mrs. Claus lead the procession, in a horse-drawn carriage, down to Hopkins Green where a choir leads everyone in  carols while the City Mayor lights the Community Christmas Tree, officially ushering in the holiday season. 

The Processional will form at 5:15pm at the Main Street entrance to the Stonewall Jackson Cemetery where candles and songbooks will be distributed. Participants are encouraged to join the group at that location.

At 5:30pm, Santa and Mrs. Claus will lead the processional down Main and Nelson Streets to Hopkins Green, caroling all the way!
