Old Fashioned Christmas Events
There is nothing like holiday events in our beautiful and quaint villages. From our classic old fashioned Christmas tree lighting in the park, to the Festival of Trees, Fireworks, Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour and more, the lights and sounds of festive celebration surround you in Mt. Washington Valley, NH.
The feeling of an “Old Fashioned Christmas” begins with caroling at Schouler Park starting at 4:30 pm presented by Da Capo. Children will receive a Golden Ticket for a chance to help Santa light the 60 foot tree!
At 5:00, Santa will arrive at Schouler Park for the official tree lighting and will choose a child to help light the tree.
From 5:30-5:50, there will be a holiday "Parade of Carols" from the North End of Norcross Circle to the Eastern Slope Inn on White Mountain Highway (Rt.16)
Visitors are encouraged to follow Santa down Main Street for 2 blocks to the Eastern Slope Inn Resort for the resort lighting. Santa will be stopping at the North Conway Library to pick up his book "Twas the Night Before Christmas." The resort will be lit at 6:00 pm.
Afterward, Santa will read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" at the Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served to all in attendance. Multiple readings will be offered to accommodate event attendees. Children can meet Santa and share with him what they would like for Christmas.
6:00-8:00 pm - The Mt. Washington Observatory Weather Discovery center will be open for attendees during Santa's reading. Located directly across from the Eastern Slope Playhouse. Experience the wonders of Mount Washington's 6,288 feet of awe and wonder!
The Old Fashion Christmas events will be supporting the non-profit charity "Angels and Elves" whose mission is to provide holiday gifts to over 600 children who might not otherwise receive one.
