Nestled along the Fox River, Geneva welcomes the holiday season with the arrival of Santa Lucia and St. Nicholas. Visitors enjoy the opportunity to stroll and shop through the historic downtown area; enjoy chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and join carolers as they sing songs of the season. Children are invited to join Santa in his Gingerbread House and tell him their latest gift wishes. The House Tour offers hand-picked homes seasonally decorated and welcomes visitors to enjoy a walk through a decorator’s dream of the holidays.
