The event will take place from 1-6 p.m. in downtown Eagle.

You can shop for gifts at the holiday market, take a picture with Santa and Mrs. Clause, pet a real reindeer, and take a carriage ride through historic Downtown Eagle. There will also be heated tents full of fun activities for kids. Local children’s choirs, “Frosty and the Shivers,” and “Red Light Challenge” will be providing music all day long from the Heritage Park Gazebo Stage.

CBS2 reports that the Eagle Fire District’s vintage fire truck will also be making an appearance so don’t forget to check it out!

While you’re there you can head to the Eagle Senior Center and check out the Eagle Arts Commission Winter Holiday Quilt and Fiber Exhibit. The exhibit opens from 12-5 p.m. and features quilts from local artists.

The tree lighting ceremony will start at 5:30 p.m.

5,000 people turned out for Eagle Country Christmas in 2018. This year promises to be bigger than ever.
