Olde Tyme Christmas is a Lancaster Tradition

Lancaster’s downtown will sparkle and shine with festive decorations on Thursday, November 30, from 5 to 9 p.m. during Olde Tyme Christmas, a night to stroll the streets and get into the spirit of the season. For a jolly good evening, begin your holiday shopping by browsing the crafters and vendors at the Town Hall and Colonel Town Rec Center, try your hand at cookie decorating, take a horse-drawn carriage ride, enjoy plenty of food and, of course, plan a visit with Santa at the Town Hall.

Shop Local on Small Business Saturday
