Halloween is long gone, Thanksgiving Day is nearly upon us and there is a definite chill in the air (well, at least there's supposed to be - if Mother Nature cooperates!).  This can only mean one thing: the holiday season is approaching faster than a team of reindeer. We’ve rounded up a list of festive events to get you stoked for Santa and more!

Holiday Festivals
Holiday Festivals
Usher in the most wonderful time of the year at local festivals, like the Annual Holiday Festival at Hamilton Town CenterHoliday on the Square in Carmel, Holiday in the Arts District, the Noblesville Holiday Parade, Frost Fest and the Cicero Christmas Festival. Most of these events include live music, kids’ activities and fun for the whole family!

Santa Claus
Meet Santa
The big man in the red suit will be making appearances right here in Hamilton County! At Clay Terrace, his big arrival is Nov. 19 and you can find him there for photo ops until Christmas Eve. In Fishers, snap a photo with Santa at Fishers City Hall Dec. 7 – 8, or drop him a letter from Nov. 14 – Dec. 12. Rather join him for a sweet treat? Visit Santa’s house in downtown Noblesville for hot chocolate and photos Dec. 2 or get an inside look at his workshop at Nickel Plate Arts for Cookies and Canvas Dec. 3-10.

Reynolds Light Display
Light Displays
December isn’t complete without viewing a spectacular light display! Check out Reynold’s Farm Equipment Annual Christmas Light Display in Fishers starting Nov. 22 and Westfield in Lights on Dec. 3 – both free.
