The Oswego Christmas Walk kicks off the holiday season on Friday, Dec. 1 on Main Street!

The Village of Oswego Christmas Walk presented by Allied First Bank kicks off the holiday season in downtown Oswego from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, December 1.  

The free event features performances by local choirs, Santa’s reindeer, live ice sculpting, an inflatable sled hill, the Village’s annual tree lighting performance and an emergency vehicle light parade. People of all ages are invited to enjoy games, crafts and giveaways. Downtown stores will also open their doors to allow participants to enjoy holiday décor and browse for gifts of the season.

The tree-lighting performance begins at 5:30 p.m. at the corner of Main and Jackson streets and features live choral music and a theatrical performance by local schools. There are also opportunities to watch Oswego’s dance troupes and other choirs at three different live entertainment locations during the event, along with DJ John Werle.

Children are encouraged to bring their wish list and visit Santa at his North Pole home away from home. Later in the evening, the illuminated emergency vehicle parade will make its way down Main Street brought to you by the Oswego Fire Protection District. In addition to decorated trucks and cars, favorite characters will take part in the parade.

Follow the Village of Oswego on Facebook for updates.
