Christmas Tree Lighting

City Hall and the streets of Olde Towne will be the venue for Clinton to kick-off the holiday season. The city's official Christmas tree lighting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, December 1, in front of City Hall. 

The Northside Elementary Show Choir will perform some of your favorite Christmas tunes. Santa will be on hand to greet children and hear their Christmas wishes. 

The performance and lighting will be followed by hot cocoa and cookies with Santa himself, but don't ruin the surprise for the little ones!

The event is free and is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit with a celebration appropriate for the entire family.

Santa Claus Crawl

Join us on Thursday, December 8th, for a scavenger hunt that takes guests throughout Olde Towne! Patricipants will be given a keepsake mug before the event for hot cider and lite refreshments that will be provided along the way. As you crawl, enjoy carriage rides through Olde Towne and take a picture with your friends in the photo booth. The night ends at 303 Jefferson where participants will be served heavy hors d'oeuvres. Santa Claus will make an appearance and assist the business owners in giving away door prizes. Call the Main Street office at 601.924.5472 for more information.
