Hometown Holidays is set to return early in December.
The annual Christmas event will be back at the Spring Hill Civic Center, 401 N. Madison St., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7 to kickoff the holiday season.
Simple and sweet this year, we’d love for you to join us for a cup of hot cocoa or coffee, Christmas carols, photo opportunities with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, a fun outdoor activity and of course, the lighting of the Mayor’s Christmas Tree.
MAYOR’S CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING
Join us as 2018 Citizen of the Year Candy Schoenberger lights the Mayor’s Christmas Tree to kick off the night. With carolers performing before the ceremony, Mayor Steven Ellis will address the crowd and then hand the switch over to Schoenberger to flip the switch, which illuminates the tree and the Civic Center. The Mayor’s Christmas Tree will be set up in a new location in the courtyard of the Civic Center.
PHOTOS WITH SANTA
Santa Claus will make a special trip to Spring Hill to hear the wishes of children, visit with them and take free photographs. Be sure to snag a photo to capture your first 2018 Christmas memory! Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be set up for photos inside the 401 Event Space in the Civic Center.
COOKIES AND HOT COCOA
Warm up inside with cookies, hot chocolate and coffee! We’ll have refreshments for all residents to enjoy inside the 401 Event Space from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
As make your way through our newly-renovated Civic Center, listen for the sounds of Christmas with groups of carolers and musicians, who are set to perform throughout the entire evening.
CANDY CANE HUNT
Don’t miss the Spring Hill Recreation Commission’s annual Flashlight Candy Cane Hunt in neighboring Friendship Park. Bring a flashlight for this fun outdoor activity and get ready to track down those candy canes!
