SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Snowflake Ornament Hunt

The first clue will be revealed at 8 am on Monday, December 3rd, 2018. There will be up to four clues revealed one per day with the final clue on Thursday, December 6th, 2018, the morning of Winter Walk. The winner will be awarded $500 in Chamber Buck Gift Certificates. Click here for the official rules.
Beginning at Family Fare at 4:45 pm, the festive parade will glitter and glow its way down the street and be the ideal countdown for the tree lighting at 5:00 pm. There is no fee to be in the parade; there will be no sponsor; nor any advertising; and space will be limited. If interested, complete the parade section below. You will be notified by November 24 if your entry is accepted. Thank you.
Tree Lighting Ceremony
Start your evening with a magical tree lighting ceremony in Bridge Square at 5:00 followed by Northfield’s Middle School Choir, directed by Matthew Laudenbach. 50+ Students will entertain and engage us from the stage on the Showmobile and lead us all in a few sing-alongs as well.
