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.

While the lighting ceremony begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Park-in-the-Square, there are many wonderful holiday activities planned from 5:00-9:00 p.m., including holiday carolers, children’s activities, charitable opportunities, shopping at downtown boutiques and dining at local restaurants. But, best of all, Santa make a grand entrance after the lighting ceremony to greet children and pose for cherished pictures at Santa’s Hut in the Park.

A special treat is the opening of the annual Opera House Christmas Tree Walk featuring dozens of trees beautifully decorated by area organizations. Then, take a stroll through the Gingerbread House Walk at the Old Courthouse and vote for your favorite edible edifice.
