Event Description:
Kick off the holiday season at the community Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration, Sunday, November 24, 2019, 2:00pm to 6:00pm.  Begin your day of fun by stopping at the Philip Heit Center for Healthy New Albany for their Kids Holiday Gift Shop. Then head over to Market Square for an afternoon of free festivities for the whole family.

Enjoy the delightful sounds of the season while you participate in crafting activities and sample holiday treats such as cocoa, hot apple cider, donuts and cookies that you decorate with your own special touch. 
 
A horse and carriage ride, holiday ice carving demonstrations and candy cane striped stilt-walkers, jugglers and festive characters will inspire your holiday spirit along with our entertainment line-up that is sure to please. Festive tunes by our own New Albany Winds, New Albany Middle School Theater, and soloist, Jennifer Hyland will fill the air. Children can jump to their heart's content in the Santa Land and Frozen bounce houses, watch a balloon magically transform into an animal shape, and stop by for a face painting make-over. Don your ugliest holiday sweater for our Ugly Sweater Contest!
 
Santa arrives at 2:00pm on his sleigh (fire truck)!
