Join Mix 941 and WHBC for kids flashing safety lights and candy — while quantities last — during Light Up Downtown!

You’ll see all your favorite Holiday characters in a very special musical main stage show that will light up the skies and light up your spirits with musical acts, fantastic fireworks and a ho, ho, ho-liday visit from the man in red.  And many of the Downtown businesses will be offering treats!

The Spectacular Stage Show starts at 5:45pm.  Fireworks follow immediately after the stage show (approximately 6:30pm). 

WHBC & Mix 941 and other participating locations will start handing out treats and surprises at 6:30pm.

Enjoy free goodies, entertainment, activities plus horse-drawn sleigh rides and Santa!  You’re in for a night of surprises and fun for all ages!  Best of all?  This festive festival is FREE!
