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!

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