Things to Do

Gingerbread Display + Contest

Walk through a delightful display of edible artwork, crafted into gingerbread houses from scores of families, groups, individuals and pastry professionals.  Vote on your favorite.  Judging will take place on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 10 AM.  Awards will be given at 11:30 AM.

Christmas Character Experiences

Hear about the first Christmas – firsthand from characters like Mary and the Innkeeper. Hear about how the original St. Nicholas started the gift-giving tradition.  Visit the palace of an evil King who tried to find a very important baby, predicted to take over his throne. 

North Pole Christmas Shoppe

Step into the magical North Pole Christmas Shoppe where you can purchase a variety of Christmas items for yourself, family and friends.   With local vendors of all types and varied price points you’re sure to find something special for the season. Plus, 10% of the proceeds go to provide Christmas gifts and toys for children in need this Christmas.

Ornament Making

Ornaments are a visible reminder of Christmas memories, traditions, and the love families share. Join us to create your own unique ornament and put Christmas 2018 on the map of your family’s tree. 

Live Music

Listen to carolers, community choirs and school musical ensembles performing your favorite Christmas songs throughout the event.  Check back on this website closer to the event for a schedule of performers and performance times.

Cookie Decorating + Face Painting

Join us for fun and fabulous face painting!  Choose a design, and with a splash of color we would love to add a festive touch to brighten your day. Ice and decorate your own cookie to take home! Each child can choose his or her own cookie and enjoy the cookie decorating process without the mess at home. Enjoy a delicious Christmas cookie by the fire as you celebrate the holiday.
