Elf Fest and North Pole Stroll
On Friday, Dec. 4, the public is invited to attend an Elf Fest and North Pole Stroll, which will precede the Mayor's Tree Lighting Ceremony. The Elf Fest will be 5-6 p.m. at Constitution Square Historic Site. Guests can enjoy holiday music by our high school marching bands, hot chocolate and kettle corn, and can get pictures with Santa and his elves and meet the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society's "Reindogs."
From 6-6:30 p.m., the public is invited to participate in the North Poll Stroll, which will begin at Constitution Square Historic Site and end at Weisiger Park. Guests will follow Santa and his elves as he travels down Main Street to the tree lighting ceremony. The Danville Fire Department, color guard, and local high school marching bands will participate in the parade.
"The North Pole Stroll is a participatory parade, which means kids and families are welcome to actually be the parade -- giving out beads and candy and marching with our local bands," Rogers said. "Community members can also be spectators -- cheering on our Main Street procession and even visiting some of our downtown stores before the parade begins. Of course costumes and any kind of festive wear, especially elf-themed, are encouraged for the North Pole Stroll."
Once the parade participants have reached Weisiger Park, the annual Mayor's Tree Lighting Ceremony will begin. Danville Children's Choir will perform during the ceremony. Following the ceremony, there will be a reception at the Community Arts Center and a chili supper at the Danville Fire Department.
