[ARCHIVED] Ring In The Holiday Season With The Geneva Christmas Walk

Yuletide cheer fills the winter air when Geneva prepares for its annual Christmas Walk at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4.

Friday evening begins with Graham’s Chocolates First Candy Cane of the season being presented with great fanfare followed by the arrival of Santa Lucia, the Swedish symbol of the season, who will offer Swedish cookies to merry-makers.

Young and young at heart will wait with anticipation as Santa Claus arrives on a horse-drawn carriage and the Great Tree on the Courthouse lawn is lit. Santa and Mrs. Claus will then open their gingerbread home for visits from excited children.

Amongst the twinkling lights and fresh greenery lined streets, chestnuts are roasting over open fires, carolers are filling the night air with seasonal favorites and a live nativity scene is taking place.

Dazzling window displays brimming with gift ideas invite shoppers to stroll through shops as merchants serve traditional holiday refreshments. Also check out the Live! Windows throughout the downtown.

The event is sponsored by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce with the support of the City of Geneva. For more information, visit the Chamber's website at the link below.
