Once again, more than 200,000 twinkling white lights will sparkle and light up the city’s Historic Courthouse Square, bringing the magic and nostalgia of the holidays, along with thousands of visitors, to Canton.

Back this year is the interactive Christmas Village, giving children the opportunity to make reindeer food for Santa’s reindeer to eat on Christmas Eve. Frosty will be near his igloo handing out marshmallows to roast by his fire, and Santa’s elves will pass out magical classes that make the Christmas lights in Canton come to life in special shapes!

To take full advantage of the festival’s breathtaking night-time views, festival hours will be 5-9 p.m. Nov. 29 – Dec. 1. Activities will start back up for nightly festival fun Dec. 6 – Dec. 23. From 5 to 9.
