Holiday Celebration 2018

The holidays are approaching fast, come celebrate in Downtown Hershey!

On Friday, December 7, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., the Downtown Hershey Association will host Downtown Hershey’s Holiday Celebration in ChocolateTown Square. Join us for our annual tree lighting and enjoy live performances, delicious treats, and a visit from Santa.

Milton Hershey School’s New Horizons choral group will perform, and cookies and cocoa will be on hand to warm you up while you sing along to classic holiday tunes! Kids can stop by to make their own ornaments, pose with Hershey’s product characters, and even “mail” letters to Santa!

New this year, food will be available for purchase from Dough Heads Waffles and Lucky Penny Burger Company. Also make sure to check out our holiday market, featuring unique artisan and gift vendors.

Of course the event would not be complete without an opportunity to visit with Santa following the lighting of the tree! Children’s Miracle Network Miracle Child, Kai, will be helping us countdown and light the tree. Come help celebrate this holiday Life on Chocolate tradition of more than 100 years!

Volunteers are needed and greatly appreciated! Click here if you’d like to help.
