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 four Nights of Lights!

Friday, November 25: 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 2: 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 9: Ugly Sweater Party - Bring out your best (or worst?) ugly holiday sweater and join us downtown for the Ugly Sweater Party. Our panel of sweater experts will award prizes for the most atrocious attire.

Friday, December 16: Holiday Movie Night - “There’s room for everyone on the Nice List!” Bring the whole family and join us in the Cunha’s Country Store parking lot for an outdoor screening of Elf, the holiday favorite starring Will Ferrell.

Main Street shops will be open late, there will be fun activities and music, and beautiful lights will adorn the trees and shop windows to light your way to a happy holiday.
