The City of Fallon is hosting their annual Hometown Christmas Celebration this weekend, December 1-2.
The Christmas open house, hosted by Mayor Ken Tedford, Councilwoman Kelly Frost, Councilwoman Karla Kent, and Councilman Paul Harmon, offers guests a place to enjoy refreshments, cookie decorating, and holiday camaraderie. The festivities will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 1, at Fallon City Hall and The Douglass House. The tree lighting will follow at 6:30 p.m. in addition to Christmas events happening throughout Fallon’s Historic Maine Street.
“It’s the most wonderful time of year, and the Fallon City Council and I are eager to invite the Fallon community and our visitors to this year’s Christmas Celebrations,” said Mayor Ken Tedford. “We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and look forward to sparking Christmas spirit across our town.”
Santa’s Wonderland, on December 2, behind City Hall, will be full of Christmas craft opportunities, such as cookie decorating, wagon rides, and ornament making. Santa will also be in attendance to meet kids and take photos. There will also be a letter-writing station for kids to write their Christmas wishes to Santa.
Fallon’s newly opened ice rink, Fallon on Ice, will be open throughout the weekend, adding to the celebrations and good tidings. Friday nights are the ice rink’s weekly theme nights, so to add to the fun, skaters, and viewers are invited to come on December 1 dressed in their best Marvel-themed costumes. The rink will close after Session 3 at 5:30 p.m., then reopen after the tree lighting for Session 4 from 7-10 p.m. For more information regarding Fallon on Ice hours and pricing, visit the official website.
Mayor Tedford and Fallon City Council encourage locals and visitors to come by on December 1-2 with family and friends to experience Fallon’s holiday joy.
