Join us in Houdini Plaza from 4-7pm for family fun to kick off the holiday season with a lighting ceremony featuring Mayor Hanna at 6:00pm!

Throughout the night, listen to live music from a variety of groups, including Kyle Megna and the Monsoons and strolling holiday carolers! There will also be fun, free activities for children throughout Houdini Plaza. Kids can meet characters, design their own paper snowflakes, decorate & enjoy cookies, make takeaway holiday cards and even visit Mrs. Claus's letter station to write Santa a letter!

From an interactive bobble head screen and costumed characters to holiday decorations and the opportunity to register to win a Downtown shopping spree, Downtown Appleton has something for everyone to do and see on Nov. 10th! As you're enjoying all of the festivities, be sure to warm up with a free cup of hot chocolate.

After the lighting ceremony at 6:00pm, continue the excitement by strolling the Avenue from 6-9pm to view the decorated windows of Downtown, take advantage of refreshments, register to win $250 in Downtown Appleton Gift Certificates and enjoy special offers in the shops open late just for you!

Vote for your favorite window through Nov. 18th on Appleton Downtown's Facebook page.
