Each year the city of Geneva, IL, located on the western side of the Chicago suburbs, hosts a festival named Geneva Christmas Walk. This one-day event is typically scheduled for early December, marking the start of the holiday season. The merriments start at 6 pm on Kane County Courthouse lawn. The highlights include the Great Tree lighting, the arrival of Santa Lucia and Santa Claus, carolers' performances, dazzling holiday lights galore, and the most special one: the longest candy cane! Feel free to bring the whole family and get into the spirit with your nearest and dearest.
The Geneva Christmas Walk festival is greatly supported by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce. So if you wish to know more details or stay tuned for the latest updates, just go to the official website of the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, or message them via Facebook.
