The holidays have arrived in America’s Friendliest College Town! In the heart of the community, you will find the featured event of the season, Merry Main Street! You won’t want to miss the exciting weekends of cheer, wonder, and fun!

Christmas trees outside at night

The highlight of Merry Main Street is the unique shopping in the geometric domes on Block 34. Different vendors will participate each weekend, so you will want to come back to see them all and find gifts for everyone on your list! You can also sign up to attend the weekly classes offered in the hospitality dome. From holiday cocktails to chocolate making, these are perfect for a girl’s night out or date night.

Merry Main St. Dome with Christmas Trees inside

While you are Downtown, be sure to drive down Main Street to see a dazzling display of over 85,000 lights set to music spanning from 4th Street beyond the roundabout to 14th Street. The hub of the show is Chris Salmon Plaza, with bright panels of animated lights, and with their large Christmas tree atop their building. Tune in to 87.9 FM to sing along to holiday favorites as you watch the lights dance.

There is nothing like the smell of a live Christmas tree to add some extra magic to your home! Bring the family to pick your beautiful tree at the Disel Tree Farm area. On select nights, you can also catch Santa Claus in his house. Bring your camera and your Christmas list to capture each special moment! Both of these great activities can be found on Block 34.
