Event Details

Kick off the holiday season with a weekend full of celebration in Nebraska City. A parade of costumed characters lead Santa Claus as he arrives to town in a horse-drawn sleigh. The parade winds through downtown, ending with the City Christmas Tree that Santa magically lights.

The annual Christmas Tour of Homes is a big draw on Sunday. Local homeowners decorate for the holidays and invite the public to tour. There is a Horse-drawn Trolley Tour of Christmas Lights in the evening to top off the weekend.
