“The best way to spread Christmas cheer
is singing loud for all to hear.”

– Will Ferrell
This is it! It's here! The month of December is upon us and we have so much to celebrate...not to mention so much to do! Ha!

If you haven't already signed up for the Christmas-packed weekend, and find yourself longing to join in the fun, here is every link you need!
This weekend, bring the family and enjoy the Annual Tree Lighting taking place Dec 3rd at 6pm in Veterans Park! Listen to the choir and watch Santa and his Special Elf flip the switch to ignite the holiday season for all to enjoy. Spend your Saturday enjoying all that downtown Elkhorn has to offer including our 40th Annual Christmas Card Town Parade at 1:30pm. The ten-block route has lots of space for families to spread out and enjoy the floats, stilt walkers, bands, and marching groups!

Grab an extra cup of hot cocoa and make your way over to the Walworth County Fairgrounds Dec 3rd - 5th! Three full days of lit floats, trees, excavators, log cabins and more! Bring the family, or leave the kids at home and bring your special someone, to enjoy a .5 mile drive-thru festival of lights that celebrates our community and the holiday season.

This time of year is magic! We have have so much to celebrate, especially all of our sponsors, volunteers, elves and Santa(s) for making this weekend a seasonal success! And to all of our guests, we cannot wait to see you at the Annual Tree Lighting, Parade and Let It Glow!
