The 2012 Littleton Candlelight Walk and Tree Lighting will be held Friday, November 23 in historic Downtown Littleton. The 29th edition of this Littleton tradition will be a festive evening of holiday lights and music for the whole family.
Santa Claus and his sleigh will make their way down Main Street magically illuminating each block with more than one million lights on the trees and buildings. He’ll be joined by holiday revelers holding candles and flashlights. There will be merchant open houses and you can have your photo taken with Santa at Town Hall Arts Center, or with his reindeer at Bradford Auto Body at 2659 West Main Street.
We can sip free hot cider and join in the music at Town Hall Arts Center, Bega Park, or Bradford Auto Body from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Candles will be available for 50 cents. Donations of non-perishable food for Inter-Faith Community Services will be accepted, as will toys for the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop. Local choirs and musical groups will provide entertainment at various Main Street locations while waiting for Santa’s arrival.
Main Street will close to traffic shortly after 5 p.m. Santa will begin his trip down the street starting at the courthouse at 6:30 p.m. The event culminates at the west end of Main Street where one lucky child's name will be drawn to help Santa throw the switch on the enormous, lighted trees in the plaza.
Free parking is available at Arapahoe Community College where we will meet, and then walk together to Main Street as a group.
