Anderson Holiday Festival Shines Brightly at Towne Center on December 1

Holiday magic begins the first day of December at the 15th annual Anderson Holiday Festival (formerly the Holiday Tree Lighting) hosted on the streetscape of the Anderson Towne Center on Saturday, Dec. 1.   NOTE, THE EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE.

Start your festivities at 4 p.m., with Santa arriving at 4:15 p.m. on his fire engine chariot. At 6 p.m. gather around the tree for the annual lighting ceremony.

Activities center around the center’s streetscape area from 4-6 p.m. Children will enjoy decorating cookies at the craft area along the streetscape. 

Participating Towne Center businesses can stamp your Holiday Passport, which may be exchanged for a gift bag and entry for raffle prizes once completed. Other events include an outdoor wood carving and ice sculpting demonstrations and outdoor fire rings.  

Anderson Towne Center businesses will provide refreshments during the evening. Don’t forget your Mail to Santa at Macy’s or bring toy donations at Huff Realty.
