Downtown Jerseyville was completely blocked off to make room for all of the festivities taking place. There was so much to see as families walked the decorated downtown streets, stopping off at all the different activities.
Many of the businesses in downtown Jerseyville got in on the fun too, not just with decorating their storefronts but hosting some of the activities inside their stores. Cookies, hot chocolate, and coffee were offered in a few store locations. Others opened their doors for crafts or even to host the North Pole Post Office, giving kids a chance to get their letters out to Santa.
For adults, live music included Isaiah Christian & the Rebel Saints, Carl & Jay Acoustic Styling, Flatliner, and Music of District 100. One of the most packed parts of the festivities was the Exhibition Tent, featuring an additional stage where choirs and other talents performed. The tent hosted many booths selling an array of wares. The tent was filled with warm heaters, making it the go-to spot for attendees to shop and get warm before heading back out into the cold and fog. Jerseyville’s Historic Cheney Mansion was also open for tours during the day. Food trucks were also set up along with popcorn for sale and lots of fried treats.
