Festival of Lights

When: Saturday, December 7, 2024
Where: Crist Park, 105 Fifth Street

Event Details

Kick off the holiday season by helping us count down to the tree lighting in Crist Park! In addition to the lighting of the trees, this event will be full of festive cheer including a parade, free horse-drawn carriage rides, a live ice sculpture demonstration resulting in an interactive ice sculpture, selfies with Santa, and carolers.

Help kick-off the holiday season by volunteering for the Festival of Lights. Volunteer positions range in times and tasks, but guarantee to help the community have a jolly time!

Market Vendors

Market vendors have the opportunity to participate in our signature events during a vendor market at the event! To be considered a market vendor, you must fit into one of three categories (Grower/Producer/Food, Artisan/Crafter, or Non-Profit) and complete the Market Vendor Application. If your business doesn’t fit into one of these three categories, you can still participate in the event as a sponsor!
