The event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 28, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be plenty of family friendly activities including kid’s crafts, games, and more.  This year, Regional Parks is excited to add the first ever Calico Ugly Sweater contest on Main Street Stage at 5:15 p.m.

Live entertainment will include music by the High D Boys, Holiday Carolers, and a special appearance by Santa Claus. Native American dancers in full ceremonial dress will perform on Nov. 27 and 28. In addition, Calico’s very own gunfighters will be deputizing all children as “holiday helpers” to assist Santa and his elves with the evening tree lighting ceremony.

The Calico Holiday Bear promotion kicks off this weekend, and guests who spend a total of $75 at Calico shops, attractions, or restaurants, can present their receipts at participating shops to pick out and take home their favorite decorated bear.
