Each December, Downtown Momence is transformed into a Christmas wonderland, with a day-long festival featuring children's activities, holiday music, horse-drawn carriage rides, and much more! Lighted storefront windows with the 2017 theme capture the magic of the season. Join in the celebration of the Community Tree Lighting ceremony at 5:00pm. During or after a long day of festivities, you can warm-up with complimentary hot cocoa and cookies at the Main Street office.
The 17th Annual Christmas Gathering will be on Saturday, December 2, 2017.
