The holidays are almost here, and Newton is getting ready to celebrate at their Annual “Light Up the Town” event on Sunday, November 30, 2014 from 5pm to 8pm at the 1924 Courthouse Square.
At 5pm at the Courthouse Square in downtown Newton, the event kicks off as Santa and his elves arrive in an 1892 Sully. They will then pose for photos with children inside the courthouse. This year the photos are sponsored by Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet, and each family will receive a complimentary photo with the option to purchase additional photos.
Several choral groups will be filling the air with seasonal music, while select downtown merchants will offer special treats for visitors. The Vertical Life group will have face painting and balloon animals, and The Elk’s Lodge will be offering free hot cocoa.
The Newton Festival and Events Committee encourages everyone to wear ugly sweaters, elf hats, Santa outfits, angel wings… anything festive! They also want to let you know to watch out for the Grinch! He may try to steal some presents!
