The City of Prattville has announced that this year's Christmas tree lighting will be held on Thursday, November 29th, beginning at 5pm, in front of City Hall. In addition to the tree lighting, there will be a "Winter Wonderland" at Heritage Park. Santa Claus will make a special appearance with his elves and life-size sleigh. The fountain will be transformed into a "Candy Cane" fountain with candy canes available for the children. Shoppers can also take advantage of the holiday shopping hours at the downtown merchants.

The annual Christmas parade will take place at 4:30pm on Saturday, December 1st. The theme for the parade is "Blue Christmas." This year the City of Prattville Grand Marshal will be decided on by nominations from residents for someone who goes above and beyond and deserves special recognition for all they do in Prattville.
