A new holiday tradition in Maxwell; Saturday Dec. 17

Excitement is in the air as Maxwell’s Country Christmas nears. It will be held from 6 PM to 9 PM on Saturday, Dec. 17, in downtown Maxwell. The event is a first for the small town with hopes to continue the event annually.

“The auxiliary committee along with Maxwell Parks and Recreation Board Members are excited to bring this event to the community,” said event planner Leighann Morris. “The community has been a great support.”

With Christmas Tyme in Colusa in jeopardy, the Maxwell Parks and Recreation district decided to come up with an event of their own.

“[The board] got together and came up with the idea and just ran with it,” said Executive Director Kyle Miller. “We have over 25 vendors participating as of today.”

Among the 25-plus vendors, include Scentsy, Avon, Origami Owl, 4H Christmas Wreaths, Sunbloom Soaps and Scrubs, and Young Living Essential Oils. Several other handmade and Christmas items will also be available, like “Snowman Soup” packages being made by the Maxwell 4H Sheep group.

Hot chocolate and baked goods will be available for purchase from Maxwell Parks and Recreation.

“I think this is a great opportunity for the community to come together and enjoy a new tradition,” said Miller. “We are excited to try something new for the community.”

The event

The light parade will kick off the evening at 6 PM with performances by The Stardust Dance.

Maxwell Fire Department will provide special host to special guest, Santa Claus. He will be available for free pictures. Santa’s elves will also be collecting letters from youngsters to deliver to the north pole.

Maxwell Junior and High School bands will perform Christmas melodies during the event.
