Other featured events include carolers singing holiday favorites, Christmas story readings, carriage rides, a petting zoo, reindeer games and many more surprises... All capped off with a fireworks display.

The following streets will be closed on Friday, December 11 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

There will be no vehicular traffic allowed on River Street and the Farmers Market Circle from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. to allow time for set up. Once the last car of the parade passes, the area will be opened up to allow for parking and traffic to pass through in this area.
