Turn out for the annual Festival of Lights Parade and tree lighting ceremony, which welcomes Santa to town. The parade runs through historic downtown Baldwin City and features Santa Claus making his grand entrance on an antique fire truck. After the parade children can visit with Santa, have their photos taken, and enjoy warm hot cocoa and cider at area businesses. Come join the start of the holiday fun! Following the Festival of Lights Parade, the block of High Street between 8th and 7th Street will be blocked off to public transportation. There will be a tree lighting ceremony, and a Christkindlemarkt.
