Start the holiday season off right at the Celebration of Lights Festival, a family-oriented event featuring a myriad of sparkling lights, festive decorations and a visit from Santa. Families will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of entertainment on Sunday, November 25 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Batavia Riverwalk.
Batavia business owner Craig Foltos will play the master of ceremonies until Santa arrives at 6:00 p.m. Mayor Jeff Schielke will greet Santa and together they will light the community Christmas tree. After the tree lighting, Santa’s
Warming House (located at the Peg Bond Center) will open, and children up to age 10 who visit with Santa will receive a special gift while supplies last.
The festival is presented by the Batavia Park District in partnership with the Batavia Chamber of Commerce, Batavia MainStreet, the City of Batavia and the Batavia Police Department.
