There’s a lot to do in Winchester today as the holiday season kicks into high gear!
First, there’s the Jingle and Mingle event going on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Main Street. There will be a food truck, vendors offering holiday-themed wares and gifts, letter-writing for the kids, and a visit from the jolly old elf himself – Santa Claus.
And while you’re downtown, be sure to drop in at some of the shops. You will find friendly faces and unique items in Winchester’s locally-owned stores and eateries.
Later in the evening, take in the beautifully decorated trees in Heritage Park on Washington Street, near Maple. Presented by Clark County Parks & Recreation in conjunction with the Heritage Park Tree committee, this new event features trees decorated by organizations in the community in the themes of angels, kindness, unity, love, and giving. Judging of the trees will take place at 6 p.m. There will be cookies and hot chocolate for everyone.
Finally, the whole family can hop in the car and take in the Festival of Lights! The city of Winchester has prepared maps of locations submitted by residents, businesses, and churches of their holiday decorations. Grab a map and take in the driving tour of some of the best holiday decorations in town.
