Holiday Hoopla "Kickoff" is the Friday after Thanksgiving, 6-8 pm

Every year, Holiday Hoopla officially kicks off the Friday after Thanksgiving when Santa Claus "secretly" arrives and the beginning of the shopping season in the Downtown District begins.

2020 will be different than any other year, with safety in mind, the kickoff will be a reverse parade.  If you have attended the kickoff in the past you need to throw all those ideas out the window, everything about this year is different. You will line up on Clay Street, heading North to join the parade where it begins at Washington and 2nd Streets. You can check out the route here at this link. We are asking you to stay in your car for the duration of the parade and follow the predetermined route. Instead of Santa arriving to a large crowd he will be a part of parade route and one of the stops you will drive by. Santa and all of his friends will be on the parade route and we can't wait to see you!
