Every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving we celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with a community gathering in the Village with a torchlight parade, cocoa, cookies, caroling, and lighting of the lights of the Village. It’s a delightfully warm and friendly evening, regardless of the weather. We gather at Village Park next to the historic water tower. The village businesses all coordinate so the lights are all turned on at the same time. It’s spectacular! Dress warmly – we have a great time no matter the weather!
Other holiday happenings include the Preschool Holiday Bazaar the day after the Village Lighting, the annual Lions Club Christmas Ship that brings Santa to Lopez in early December, the annual Thrift Shop Christmas Sale, the annual Jingle Bell Dinner the day after Thanksgiving, as well as various craft fairs.
