Celebrate the season of giving by helping disadvantaged families in the Liberty community.
Ring in the holiday season with the lighting of Liberty's historic downtown square on Thursday, November 18.
The program, which will be held on the south side of the historic Clay County Courthouse, will get underway at 6 p.m. Prior to the lighting of the square, spectators will be treated to a collection of holiday songs sung by students from area elementary schools.
Mayor Greg Canuteson will recognize first, second and honorable mention winners of the annual coloring contest. The evening's events will culminate with the flip of a switch turning on the thousands of lights trimming the historic buildings around the square.
Santa Claus will "fly" into town for the event on a shiny red "sleigh." So kids, be on your best behavior and parents, bring your cameras!
Free cookies, hot dogs and hot chocolate will be available. Donations will be welcomed to help support the Community Christmas Tree program, which lends a hand to disadvantaged Liberty families and seniors during the holiday season.
As you make plans to attend this holiday event, please keep in mind that Kansas Street will be closed between
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
