It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…everywhere you go around the lake. Have you seen the Christmas light displays in Laurie or Osage Beach yet? They stay on through the rest of the month. If you live in or plan on visiting Versailles anytime soon, add the City Park’s Unity Circle of Lights to your list. This Saturday, make it an entire day of holiday festivities with Christmas Around Versailles 2019 first. Then go see the Unity Circle of Lights afterward.
Christmas Around Versailles 2019
First up on the docket: shopping. Grab your Christmas list and bring it to downtown Versailles. From 12 pm to 5 pm, vendors set up booths all around the square with unique items perfect for the hard-to-shop-for individuals on your list. Most vendors offer special discounts for this event as well.
Pick up a “passport” at any vendor. Then, obtain signatures at each vendor you visit. At the end of the day, submit your completed passport for your chance at great prizes worth $250 each.
Santa & a Tree Lighting
Santa comes to Square Deals Ice Cream Shop on Jasper at 12:30 pm. He poses for pictures and takes gift requests from kids all afternoon long. Make sure you bring your camera for this great photo opportunity. Then, at 5:30 pm, make sure you’re in City Park for the official Versailles Christmas tree lighting. Afterward, walk around the park to take in the beautiful twinkling light display at the Unity Circle of Lights. So much holiday fun in one day for the entire family! And it’s all provided absolutely free.
