heARTfelt Christmas coming to Waitsburg
December 9, 2021
WAITSBURG-Coming out of a pandemic has been no match for Waitsburg's Christmas spirit. With Hometown Christmas, typically held the second weekend after Thanksgiving, on hold, due to the pandemic, community members have come together to bring plenty of Christmas sparkle to our little town.
A little later than normal, the Waitsburg's heARTfelt Christmas celebration will take place on Saturday, December 18. Enjoy local shopping, food, libations, Santa, and a parade through town. Be sure to take a walk or drive after the parade to appreciate all the lights and decorations in the neighborhoods.
Santa Claus will be in the lobby at the Plaza Theater on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. take a photo and be sure to let Santa know your Christmas wishes.
All along Main Street will be busy! The Weller Public Library will be serving hot cocoa and cookies. Sign up for a new library card or check out a new book while there. The Friends of the Library has been working hard to update the library, so look around and see what is new!
There will be fun holiday gift shopping at The Gaudy Girls, Blush Salon, and Ten Ton Coffee.
Bundle up for a Christmas Parade on December 18. Horses, floats, and four-wheelers are just a few of the entries so far, and entries will be accepted through Thursday, December 16, late entries will be considered.
The parade route will be different from years past, so check out the map to find the best place to watch the fun.
