Holiday Happenings to Light Up Downtown Andover This Friday

ANDOVER — The Town of Andover will celebrate Holiday Happenings on Friday, Dec. 7, from 4-8  p.m. Holiday Happenings is a community wide event that will kick off the holiday season in Andover and Light Up The Night!  

Festivities will take place throughout Main Street and the Park at Town Hall. The Park will host food vendors, a carousel ride, entertainment and the tree lighting. This year, additional activities will take place on Main Street including photos with Santa at Old Town Hall, carnival rides, live music coordinated by the Free Christian Church, Roaming Railroad train rides, a holiday stilt walker, arts & crafts at the Center @ Punchard, along with shopping and dining at many downtown shops and restaurants.

The evening concludes with our fireworks extravaganza, where we will “Light Up The Night” in the playstead behind the Andover Youth Center.

There will be much to do for all attendees – all amidst participating businesses open late, so event goers can get in on some shopping while enjoying the happenings.

“The gas disaster of September 13th greatly impacted our community, which is why I felt it was so important for our community to come together,” says Town Manager Andrew Flanagan. “We have been a resilient town and Holiday Happenings is a time when we can take a moment to celebrate each other and spread some holiday cheer.”

“We are excited to see Main Street back in business and our residents supporting our local business owners, some of whom lost so much this past fall,” said Flanagan.

The Town of Andover, staff and volunteers hope you will come out and Light Up The Night with us at Holiday Happenings!
