Firehouse ally will be transformed into a small outdoor market. Saturday night is the 22nd Annual Holiday parade of Lights in downtown Jefferson—a favorite event for locals with the finale being the arrival of Santa himself! As part of this event, the Outdoor Winter market will be open all day leading up to and after the parade. Local businesses will serve refreshments, offer Holiday items and serve hot chocolate and Gluehwein—a traditional German holiday wine-based beverage.
After Santa arrives in the parade, the Rotary Park lights will be illuminated to start the month long Winter Nights, River Lights holiday display. Immediately following, Santa will greet children and families in the Chamber of Commerce office which is adjacent to the Outdoor Winter Market in Firehouse Alley. Sunday will host another round of winter events as well as the Santa house. More details to follow.
