Shops stay open late, street-side carolers roll in, and a once-a-year visit from St. Nick occurs on December 6, from 12 to 6pm. The 12th annnual event includes the addition of five new houses to be featured on the tour, plus seven historic sites and buildings. $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for children age 12 and under (children age four and under are free). All proceeds from the event will go to Partners with PARC, which provides funding to programs and services for children and adults with developmental disabilities throughout Putnam County.
