HOMETOWN CHRISTMAS

December 17 & 18, 2-8 PM

Hometown Christmas is back! Come out and join the fun with our friends and neighbors. There will be family activities, a live nativity, giant Christmas tree, craft vendors, food trucks, sock skating rink, and more! Scroll down this page to see pictures from last year.

This year, we expect an even larger crowd as the word has gotten out about how much fun it is! That means we need an army of our family to prepare for, welcome, and assist them during Hometown! Join the team by signing up below.

HOMETOWN CHRISTMAS 21


We had a great time at Hometown Christmas 21 meeting new friends and enjoying the festivities. The lights, pictures with Santa, carolers, animals at the live nativity, sock skating rink, barrel train, food trucks, craft vendors, and more all added to a memorable experience with friends and family. We are grateful for all of the volunteers who put in hundreds of hours helping prepare and serve at Hometown Christmas. We're looking forward to next year!
