Downtown holiday festivities kick off Nov. 26


 Current in Noblesville

       The City of Noblesville along with Noblesville Main Street, the Chamber of Commerce, and Hamilton County, are finalizing plans for the upcoming holiday activities . The season will kick off Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. with the annual Lighting Ceremony, sponsored by the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce. 
       This event, held at the Hamilton County Judicial Center, is always a hit with families and includes special holiday music, a reading of “The Night Before Christmas” by Mayor John Ditslear, and of course, the lighting of the beautiful downtown lights. 
        The holiday festivities will then continue on Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. with the annual Christmas parade.  The theme this year is “The Spirit of Christmas With Family and Friends” and the grand marshal will be Dale Snelling.  Dale is a big contributor to the Noblesville community through his service to many local non-profit and civic organizations through the years. 
       As always, the holiday parade will mark the debut of Santa Claus to Noblesville.  Boys and girls are invited to stop by Santa’s house on the courthouse square after the parade or during the hours listed below and tell him what they would like for Christmas.
           The fun continues Dec. 3 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the monthly First Friday event, sponsored by Noblesville Main Street and the City of Noblesville.  The downtown shops and restaurants will be featuring special sales, Santa Claus will be in his house, and other fun events will be taking place.  This will be the last first Friday event until May.
