Christmas is near, and for MainStreet Dayton, that means it is time for Christmas at the Courthouse and Brunch with Santa!

On Saturday, December 1, starting at 8:30 AM, MainStreet will be hosting the annual Christmas at the Courthouse event where there will be an entire cozy late-Fall day of activities and vendors. Come dressed in your wackiest or classiest–whatever your preferred style–elf or Christmas-themed regalia at sunrise at 8:30 AM for the Jingle Bell Run. The best costumes will win a prize.

After some early-morning exercise, enjoy the Christmas at the Courthouse featured event: Brunch with Santa. Included in the brunch is a full pancake breakfast, photos with Santa beginning at 12 PM, and your own piece of pottery to decorate at Paint the Town.

Afternoon activities include the Christmas Critters Pageant in Centennial Park at 1 PM, the Horse and Carriage Parade at 4 PM, and Caroling at the Courthouse immediately following the parade.

Register here for the Jingle Bell Run until December 1, and visit this page for the Christmas Critters Pageant application. Tickets for Brunch with Santa are $15 for adults, $10 for children over 2, and are available for purchase at the Welcome Center. For more information, visit Christmas at the Courthouse, call (423) 775-9847, or stop by 107 Main St. Dayton, TN.

Come out and celebrate (early) Christmas with MainStreet at Christmas at the Courthouse, December 1st.

Merry Christmas!
