Christmas on the Creek at W.M. Brook Park. Santa will be there along with live music, food tent, new light displays, Santa's village, the new "Festive Forest of Fanciful Firs", and sleigh rides ($5/person) on our new sleigh built by the Parks Department in conjunction with Christmas on the Creek. An enchanting evening for all!
This year's lights will be turned on Thanksgiving night and will remain on, dusk to dawn, through New Year's Day, 2019. See what we have done along Sulphur Creek: beautifully lit trees and a nativity that is just right for the season. What's new this year? Sleigh rides, singing trees, Festive Forest of Fanciful Firs, and lots of new lights!
