    Twinkle Party

    Note: we try to keep to the following schedule as best as possible but these times are estimations. It is strongly encouraged to attend the entire event to guarantee participation in certain parts.

    Bring the kids to our annual Twinkle Festivities at 4pm. Meet at the pedestrian plaza to the river side of Water Street Inn. The Teddy Bear band will be performing at the amphitheater. Keep your eyes open for strolling characters! There might be a princess sighing. Or perhaps an Olaf?

    We have 1200 twinkle lights that are free to kids 12 and under and a few light up items available for purchase as well this year! Families are encouraged to decorate themselves with battery powered lights from home too!

    SCHEDULE FROM 2016 (2017 TBD)...

    Dress warm to celebrate the official lighting of our city's Christmas tree, dance along with the Teddy Bear Band, and enjoy a complimentary cookie, free trolley rides, and cocoa and coffee will be enjoyed.

    Santa and Ms. Claus arrive via fire truck around 5pm traveling from the north down Water Street and then walk down the pedestrian plaza towards the amphitheater.

    Tree, via JG Hause Construction, is lit around 5:30 by Santa and Mayor Ted. Family friendly fireworks immediately follow the tree lighting.

    The Twinkle Party is just one of the many holiday traditions downtown Stillwater as part of the month-long Hometown for the Holidays event from Black Friday to New Year's Eve.
