‘Tis the season for tree lighting, carols, and cocoa! There are three big holiday happenings in Hendricks County on November 23rd, 2018: Christmas on the Square in Danville, the opening of the Winterland Holiday Light Display, and the Avon Ice Rink’s first day of the season. If you’re looking for holiday cheer, you’ll find plenty in Hendricks County!
This popular annual event kicks off the holiday season in Danville with the lighting of the Christmas tree. Christmas characters stroll around to mingle with the crowd underneath a canopy of lights, a trackless train travels around downtown Danville, and the Live Nativity tells the Christmas story.
From November 23rd through December 28th, you can drive through this Chrismas light experience in Danville’s Ellis Park. This year, new light displays include a Colts horseshoe, fishing penguins, two custom arches, and the 12 Days of Christmas. The cost is $5.00 Monday-Thursday, or $10.00 from Friday-Sunday.
