Wicked Interesting:

Warren Holiday Festival


We’ve got an event you won’t want to miss, especially if you’re in the East Bay, It’s the Warren Town Holiday Festival which kicks off Friday, November 25th from 5-8pm and follows up with additional activities on Saturday, November 26th from Noon-3pm!

The schedule is still being finalized and will be available by Monday, but we can tell you that there will be choral performances, the Toe Jam Puppet Band will be performing, Circus Dynamics will have 2 Fire Show presentations, and of course – the Man of the Season: Santa Claus will be in attendance so you can get your photos with Santa and share your list with him, although, I’m pretty sure he’s already well aware of what your little ones are wanting this Christmas!

The highlight, as it is every year is the Friday Night Parade led by the Mt. Hope High School Marching Band.  It’s a candle light procession up Baker St., taking a right on Main Street ending at the Town Hall where they’ll count down and throw the switch, lighting up all the colorful lights in the trees that line Downtown Main Street and the poles on the north end of Water St!

This is a great event for your family, your friends, your grandparents – whoever!  Grab some hot coco, and throw on your hat & mittens for the Warren Holiday Festival!
