Christmas At The Square

Christmas at the Square began in 2012.  The idea was to enhance our downtown during the holidays, by inviting businesses, non-profit groups and families to display a tree in the spirit of Christmas.

We hope that this tradition continues and grows every year.  The 2016 Registration form is listed below.  New for this year, we are having the trees judged for best overall decorating, with prized being awarded as follows:  1st Place - $100; 2nd Place - $50; 3rd Place - $25.


Christmas at the Square Tree Lighting was held December 3rd at 5:15 pm.  We had a total of 11 participants and they were as follows:
  • Bramblewood Homeowner’s Association
  • Friends of the Library
  • The Kiel Family

  • Chippewa Youth Cheerleading Association 
  • Smitty’s Car Service
