Visit the beautiful and historic Square on the Friday after Thanksgiving and help the City of Woodstock usher in the official start to the holiday season.

With the flip of a switch, tens of thousands of twinkling lights are illuminated on Park trees and Square buildings, ushering in the magic of Christmas in a Victorian-era setting. The event begins at 4:00 p.m., followed by the grand arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus on an antique fire engine at 5:00 p.m. While the Lighting Ceremony begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Park-in-the-Square, there are many wonderful holiday activities planned from 4:00-8:00 p.m., including holiday carolers, children’s activities, charitable opportunities, shopping at downtown boutiques and dining at local restaurants and food trucks. A highlight for children and parents alike is a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at Santa’s Hut in the Park in the Square following the Lighting Ceremony beginning at 7:30 p.m.
