Dear Madison County residents,
I would like to invite you to our 3rd Annual Monticello Downtown Community Christmas on Friday, December 2nd from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
This year we are blessed to have two church choirs, New Bethel AME and Elizabeth Baptist Church sing carols to start off the night at 5:45 pm in the garden of the Wirick-Simmons house, as well as a special invocation by Minister Phil Carter and Monticello’s very own Mayor, Tom Vogelsang.
Stay to watch the lighting of the Community Christmas tree at 6:30 pm! East Dogwood Street will be decorated like a winter wonderland lined with local non-for-profit vendors selling items to raise money and to bring awareness to their organizations. Santa will be arriving via fire truck after the tree lighting, ready to hear the children’s wishes at Santa’s Groto. Wander around town and visit the Methodist Church to see Bethlehem’s Live Nativity Scene. Stop in for eggnog and a tour of the Historic Wirick Simmons house.
Come early for dinner at one of the many local restaurants, shop for those special gifts in the stores downtown, all will be open late for the festivities. All activities are free, including balloon characters and face painting. Come out and spend a night with your neighbors kicking off the holiday season.
