Home for the Holidays
Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st, 2018
Every year, the Melrose Chamber of Commerce hosts Home for the Holidays, a city-wide holiday open house that ushers in the holiday season in our community over two days.
Friday Evening Festivities:
5:45pm: Join us on the lawn of City Hall for holiday singing with local group, Main Street News!
6:00pm – 6:15pm: Cheer and Sing as we light the City Hall Christmas Tree (tree lights and labor donated by LCM PLUS!). Then stroll down towards the YMCA to await Santa’s arrival.
Around 6:30pm: Santa Claus will arrive in downtown Melrose!
All day on Saturday the city will be full of fairs, performances, sales, specials, The Nutcracker, and tastings that last throughout the weekend.
Special holiday trolleys will run from 10:00am – 2:00pm, carrying shoppers throughout the shopping districts, for free. The trolleys are made possible by our generous business sponsors below.
The 2018 Complete List of Home for the Holidays Activities can be found here (updated 11/28/18).
The 2018 Trolley Map is final and can be found here.
Free trolleys will run from 10:00am – 2:00pm and originate at Cedar Park. The last trolleys out of Cedar Park will be at around 1:40PM as the trolleys stop running all together at 2:00pm sharp so plan your travels accordingly.
