Geneva Christmas Walk & House Tour

Friday, December 6

Celebrate the start of the holiday season with the Christmas Walk and House Tour. Many shops and restaurants are offering specials and events throughout the weekend. The Christmas Walk begins Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. 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 p.m. 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. The House Tour takes place on Dec. 6 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Dec. 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Five distinctive homes are decorated for the holidays.
