Holiday on the Square

Next weekend, November 20th, is the annual 'Holiday on the Square' in Carmel. It is from 4.30pm until 6.30pm. The holiday lights will be switched on around 5.45pm.
"There will be jugglers, carolers, balloon artists, and a visit from Santa, two of his reindeer and other North Pole animals.
 Back by popular demand—The Carmel Farmers Market will be holding a “Holiday Market” during the event featuring all of your favorite holiday foods and treats, including waffles, salsa, mulled wine, caramel corn, fudge and more! 
Holiday entertainment will be provided by Blair Clark with the Carmel Voices; Central Indiana Dance Ensemble; Clay Middle School Choir; and Carmel Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet. Refreshments will be provided by Shapiro’s Delicatessen and the CFD Auxiliary. 
The first 400 children will receive goodie bags filled with surprises donated by event sponsors.  
Attendees are encouraged to bring unwrapped gifts for those in need in the local community. They may be placed under the “giving tree” at the Civic Square Gazebo. (note: no plush toys please) These will be donated to the Carmel Fire Department’s Christmas Assistance Program."

 We went last year and the kids loved it. We hadn't been living in Carmel very long and this was the first big community event we went to. The lights were lovely. It was nice to see so many people out to watch them be turned on and all the kids waiting in line to see Santa.
