Carson Valley Christmas Kickoff

The Town of Gardnerville presents the 10th Annual Carson Valley Christmas Kickoff on December 1, 2016. Santa will arrive and there will be horse drawn wagon rides around Heritage Park starting at 4:30 p.m.  The entertainment starts at 5:30 p.m.  Experience the small town holiday season that brings back memories of family and friends enjoying time together around the Town Square. The event features the Sierra Bell Ringers,a local bell ringing group;  the All About Dance kids, the Carolers singing classic holiday season songs; a musical light show that will delight the whole family and (weather permitting) a fireworks display. Join Santa to kick off the start of the holiday season. Enjoy hot chocolate, spiced cider and dutch oven cobblers made fresh at the event, so every bite is warm, taking the chill off a cold winter night. Join your friends and neighbors for a wagon ride around the park before the fireworks.

If you miss the event, drive around the park and tune your radio to 89.9 FM any evening between 5:00-10:00 p.m. to hear & see the musical light show from this year and previous years. It will play continuously each evening until New Year's.
