Once again 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, November 26th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Fort Dodge Public Library. Santa will come down Central Avenue and be delivered to City Square Park at 5:30 p.m. courtesy of the Fort Dodge Fire Department where he will be joined by the Mayor for the holiday lighting ceremony. Following the brief ceremony, 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 choirs singing Christmas carols. Children will also have the opportunity to take their picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Those who wish to have their picture taken are encouraged to provide their own cameras. Weather permitting there will also be hayrides down Central Avenue and 1st Ave S.
