Exciting information about this year's City of Anderson Christmas Season!

Mayor Thomas J. Broderick, Jr. announced today the upcoming activities and schedule for the Anderson Downtown Winterfest. Mayor Broderick stated, “The Winterfest is intended to bring exciting and fun activities into downtown for our children and community to enjoy while supporting and showcasing our downtown businesses.

We hope everyone will take advantage of these exciting events.” The event activities will begin Saturday, December 1. The center of activity will be in Downtown Anderson at Dickmann Town Center.
Mayor Broderick explained that a new addition to this year’s event will be a synthetic ice skating rink and Santa’s new house located in Dickmann Park.

The nearly 2,150 square foot skating rink will be able to accommodate 50 people and will be available for residents to enjoy for a six-week period. Because the surface is synthetic figure skating skates cannot be used, appropriate stakes will be available as part of the event. Mayor Broderick announced that the ice-skating will be free of charge. Skating sessions may be limited to allow for more participation.

The events will kick-off beginning Saturday, December 1st at 3:00 p.m. with a visit from Santa and beautiful fairytale princesses. Santa and the Princesses will be visiting with children in his new Santa House located at the park. Santa will also be at his Santa House at Dickmann Park on the Saturdays of December 8th and 15th to visit with the children between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

A large polar bear slide, snowball fighting, caroling, and skating will be available during the December 1st kick-off event along with free hot chocolate. The tree lighting ceremony will begin at 5:00 p.m. with musical performances by the Highland Middle School Choir, which will be followed by the official tree lighting by Mayor Broderick. This year’s new live 20 foot Christmas tree is being donated by one of Anderson’s newest businesses, Italpollina.

The celebration will then continue with the Christmas Parade beginning at 6:00 p.m. featuring Anderson’s finest organizations, including the Anderson High School Marching Highlanders. The parade route will begin at 8th and Meridian and head south to 13th Street, and then proceed on 13th Street west to Jackson Street and then north to 8th St. Sponsorships and entries for parade participation are available. Parade entries are free of charge.
