“We were disappointed last year when we were unable to open due to the pandemic. We can’t wait to once again share the joy of Christmas with the community,” said Chris Blanchard, executive director. “We invite everyone to come and share in the celebration.”

To ensure safety amid the pandemic the festival will have capacity limits and will require tickets be purchased in advance online.
