TOMAHAWK – Hometown Christmas will be held once again in downtown Tomahawk, with this year’s festivities taking place on Friday, Dec. 11, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“There have been additions, adjustments, and returning favorites from last year,” organizer Dalpha Halvorson stated.
Halvorson noted that the Community Christmas Tree, sponsored by the Relay for Life’s We Can Be Heroes Team, is up and lit on the east end of W. Wisconsin Ave.
Kids can drop off their letters to Santa in a special mailbox at the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce building, located at 208 N. 4th St., by Dec. 12, “so Santa himself has time to answer,” Halvorson said. Forms are available at the Chamber or City Hall, 23 N. 2nd St.
An ATV/UTV parade will take place on W. Wisconsin Ave. at 4:30. Those wishing to participate can line up at Fusion, 22 N. Railway St., at 4 p.m.
“All entries should be lit and decorated, so go crazy,” Halvorson stated.
Downtown store windows will again feature live mannequins, this year decorated like Christmas songs. The mannequins will “come alive” from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Halvorson noted, adding that a panel of judges will choose “the fairest in the land.”
“We have taken care to provide you a safe Hometown Christmas,” organizers noted. “We ask that you help with social distancing and face coverings when close to each other. Have fun, and be safe!”
