Swiss Village Annual Christmas Lighting Tradition will kick off on  November 27th and 28th.

There will be a full carnival in the northern Swiss Village area with rides, vendors and giveaways.  Come meet the Jolly old elf himself - Santa Claus.

There will also be roaming entertainment such as magicians, face painters, Christmas Carolers and more.  Each business will have some free giveaways and some crafts for kids to participate in set up in front of their locations.  We will also have Christmas trees decorated and then given to families in need at the end of the event.   During the event these will be locations where people can vote for their favorite tree by placing donations of canned goods under them.
