St. Charles Fire Truck Decorated with Christmas Lights


Join us Friday, November 29 at 5 p.m. in the 1st Street Plaza to kick off the holiday season. Come together with the St. Charles community as we flip the switch and light up the city with a spectacular display of holiday lights.

Saturday Nov. 30 at 10 a.m. head to Arcada Theatre for a free screening of Home Alone. While you’re in town, don’t miss out on the St. Charles Shop Crawl that takes place Saturday, Nov. 25 through Sunday, Nov. 26. Later in the evening, witness the captivating Electric Christmas Parade, which begins at 5:30 p.m. on Main Street between 6th Street and 4th Avenue. Take in the beautifully lighted parade floats, the high school marching bands, and a special guest - none other than Santa Claus himself!

Also be sure to visit Santa's House every Saturday and Sunday from Nov. 29 – Dec. 21 from 1-4 p.m. in the 1st Street Plaza.
