2017 Grand Illumination
Friday, November 17, 2017
The 2017 Suffolk Holiday Season begins on Friday, November 17, 2017, with a hometown kickoff. The Grand Illumination Ceremony at Market Park in Downtown Suffolk will ring in the holidays for families in our community with the park opening at 6 p.m.
Watch the 32-foot tree light up when the switch is flipped to illuminate Suffolk for the season. Be there as Santa arrives in style, enjoy seasonal music, take a tour of the Suffolk Seaboard Railroad Museum and purchase your own horse-drawn carriage ride. Youngsters will also be able to participate in various holiday-themed craft activities in specially-heated tents. Be sure to bring along your camera to capture your children’s smiling faces as they whisper their Christmas wishes to Santa Claus.
Parking will be available at the Visitor Center at 524 North Main Street and shuttle service will run from the Godwin Courts Building parking lot and First Baptist Church parking lot on Main Street starting at 5:45 p.m.
