Location: Victorian Square

The City of Sparks will ring in the holiday season on December 5 - December 6 with a Truckee Meadows tradition – the Sparks Hometowne Christmas event. The Victorian Square celebration is known for its focus on family.

The festivities get under way at 6:30 p.m. on December 5 with the tree lighting ceremony on Victorian Avenue. There will be plenty of holiday cheer for those in attendance. The tree lighting ceremony will conclude at 7 p.m.

The celebration will continue on December 6 with the Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Come down early and get hot chocolate compliments of Living Stones Church. Check in on Santa at Santa’s Village at the Schoolhouse, the elves at the Boys and Girls Clubs keep the Santa in the “ho-ho-ho” mood. Enjoy great Christmas shopping (and get out of the cold) at the Hometowne Craft Faire in the Heritage Museum and Cultural Center, Victorian and Pyramid Highway. - See more at: City of Sparks
