The Night the Lights Come On

"The Night the Lights Come On" is the annual Christmas celebration in Shenandoah the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Its origin stems from the night the new streetscape lights were turned on downtown in the year 2000. After months of darkness during construction, the downtown sparkled with the lighted Christmas trees and new stylish street lights. Today, the downtown lights also feature lighted deer on each corner. One thousand lights adorn the giant 60 foot Christmas tree next to city hall. During the celebration Santa turns on the lights and visits with children during a soup and pie supper at the Fire Station. Bricker Botanical Center also debuts the "Night the Lights Come On." Downtown merchants are open late during the Christmas season for shopping convenience.
