Christmas Walk &
December 6 & 7, 2013
Celebrate the beauty of the season with the Annual Christmas Walk and House Tour. Many shops and restaurants are offering specials and events throughout the weekend.
The traditional Christmas Walk begins on December 6 at 6:00 pm when Santa Lucia, the Swedish symbol of the season, and her attendants arrive by horse-drawn carriage to offer Swedish cookies to visitors. Santa makes his appearance to light the Great Tree on the Courthouse lawn (on South Third Street between James & Campbell) and officially opens his Gingerbread House (corner of James & South Third) at 6:30 pm. Enjoy an evening of holiday shopping and dining in historic Geneva and delight in chestnuts roasting, strolling carolers, freshly-made candy canes and hot cider. Your family has the opportunity to be the first to greet Santa this Geneva holiday season.
The House Tour takes place on Friday, December 6 from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and Saturday, December 7 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Five distinctive homes decorated for the holidays will open their doors to visitors for self-guided tours. A traditional tea at the Congregational Church in Geneva, and a keepsake decorating and entertaining ideas booklet are also included in the tour.
