Nights of Lights

Fridays, November 26 - December 17, 2021

6 PM - 8 PM

This year, more than any other, shopping small is the best thing you can do for your community! So instead of one night, we've gone back to our roots and there will be 4 Nights of Lights! Main Street shops will be open late and there will be beautiful lights adorning the trees and shop windows to light your way to a happy holiday!

  • Friday, November 26 : Christmas Tree Lighting and Decorating - We’re lighting up the big tree in Mac Dutra Park! Kids are invited to bring handmade ornaments to hang on the tree.

  • Friday, December 3 : Annual Lighted Parade and Santa Claus - The Parade is back! The Annual Lighted Parade with Santa Claus starts around 6:15 — come early to stake out your spot! Santa will be in Mac Dutra Park after the parade. The Kid’s Zone will take place next to the park on Kelly with fun activities for kids of all ages.

  • Friday, December 10 : Holiday Market - Come to Main Street when the shops are open until 8:00pm and will have specials, drinks, snacks, and sidewalk wares geared toward gift-giving and stocking-stuffing.
  • Friday, December 17 : Holiday Caroling & Music - With live music at Mac Dutra Park and Carolers strolling Main Street, it’s a perfect evening to finish up last minute shopping! Music starts at 6:00pm.
