HO! HO! Ho-Liday time!

The annual Holly Days festival and tree lighting ceremony is set for Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza. Festivities begin at 1 p.m. with a special winter marketplace featuring local artists, crafts, food and drinks, fresh winter produce and live entertainment. Activities will include a unique indoor playground and free Santa train rides around the plaza. From 2 to 4 p.m., children can visit with Santa in the lobby of the center. The tree lighting ceremony is at 5:30 p.m.

Holly Days is a partnership between Tuesday Marketplace, Pack 1st Properties and city of Hillsboro.
