Ho Ho Holidays in Eureka Springs are so much fun! Eureka Spring’s holidays are chock-full of exciting events; almost too many to list! Some of our absolute favorites:
Christmas Parade of Lights: Town is fully decorated for the holidays and we kick off with the annual Parade of Lights Friday, December 1st. One of Eureka’s very most anticipated parades and one of the few nighttime parades, we roll out at 6 pm with floats, walkers, bands and thousands and thousands of colorful lights. This year’s theme is “Peace on Earth”!
Santa in the Park: Dec 2nd and December 9th, Santa is in Basin Springs Park from 1 pm to 3 pm. Give your Christmas List to Santa and grab a photo op! Christmas tunes to delight all ages; kids will have a blast making an ornament and playing a few rounds of Christmas Cane Walk. (This hometown Christmas fun is brought to you by the Main Street Eureka Springs team.)
Candlelight Christmas Tour of Homes: Saturday Dec 2nd, 3 pm – 8 pm. Sponsored by the Preservation Society, it’s a fabulous walking tour of 9 of Eureka’s most beautifully restored homes, lavishly decorated for holiday season with Victorian-attired docents relating the history of each home. Visitors will be treated to carolers, Christmas music and refreshments along their journey through one of the largest historical districts in the country.
51st Annual Silver Tea: Thursday, Dec 7th, St. James Episcopal Church presents the 51st Annual Silver Tea from 1:30 to 3:30 in the Crescent Hotel’s Crystal Dining Room. It’s a winter wonderland with tables full of silver trays holding beautiful tea cookies and sandwiches. Donations go to to Purple Flower, Carroll County’s domestic violence outreach center.
Night of 1000 Santas: Downtown Eureka Springs Christmas Scavenger Hunt is back and better than ever! Making your list and checking it twice? Santa knows who’s naughty and nice!
