The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
A free family fun event to celebrate the official flip of the switch to turn on hundreds of light displays for another year. Start in the afternoon with crafts and storytime with Mrs. Claus, gather around for the first look at the lit displays and a dazzling fireworks display at 7 pm, then stay for a horse-drawn wagon ride around the downtown core. Live music will be playing. A food booth, hot chocolate and popcorn available to keep you toasty warm.
