We have a great night planned for Holiday on Central, the community tradition that marks the beginning of the holiday season. Fort Dodge’s annual downtown celebration will be held on Monday, December 9th from 5:00-6:30 p.m. at the Fort Dodge Public Library. Santa will come down Central Avenue and be delivered to City Square Park at 5:00 p.m. courtesy of the Fort Dodge Fire Department. Following the arrival of Santa, families are invited to participate in a variety of kids activities inside the library. These activities include a holiday craft station, story time, cookie decorating, letters to Santa, hot chocolate and/or apple cider, and local high school choir singing Christmas carols. Children will also have the opportunity to take their picture with Santa. Those who wish to have their picture taken are encouraged to provide their own cameras.
