If you have kids, make plans now to attend Light Up Your Holiday! Downtown Kokomo will be bustling with holiday cheer on Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 4-7 pm with the arrival of Santa on the train, live reindeer, Christmas stories & crafts, letters to Santa, holiday treats, downtown lights & much more. Admission is free. Downtown art galleries and boutiques will also be open for holiday shopping. Kids of all ages will have a blast at this event!
