December 6, 2013, 11:00 AM - 8:00 PM @ Downtown Geneva
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.

For the fifth year, many retail storefront windows in downtown Geneva will truly be “alive” with the spirit of the holiday.
Following the Christmas Walk, local “models” including students from Geneva High School and Elgin Academy will bring the tradition of holiday windows to life. Enjoy the sights and sounds of a bagpipe player and dancers at Strawflower Shop. Check out the glamorous brides at Crystal Bride. Watch ballroom dancing at Vargo’s Dance.
Most Live! Windows are on State Street where there is great holiday shopping. A map of participating shops is available.
