Homewood, Alabama— The Homewood Chamber of Commerce invites you to celebrate Homewood for the Holidays, a conglomeration of Holiday events that will be sure to bring Holiday cheer to the Homewood Community!
Holiday Open House: The nineteenth annual Holiday Open House will be held Thursday, November 7, 2019 beginning at 5 p.m. in Downtown Homewood. The Merchants of 18th Street and surrounding areas invite you to kick of the holiday season with extended store hours, holiday specials, refreshments and other treats. Enjoy the sounds of the season from local musicians while you stroll through the streets, hop on the Homewood for the Holidays Trolley to be transported throughout the downtown area, and bring your little ones for a picture with Santa!
Holiday Open House draws thousands of people to the Homewood Community each year, and is one of the Chamber’s most anticipated events. In addition to kicking off the holiday shopping season, Homewood for the Holidays encourages the community to shop locally in smaller boutiques closer to home — stressing the importance for holiday shoppers to support our local businesses.
The Lighting of the Star & Homewood Christmas Parade: The ninth annual Lighting of the Star will be held on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at the top of the 18th Street hill in Downtown Homewood, directly in front of LAH Real Estate. Mayor Scott McBrayer will light the star at 6:30 p.m. sharp as the official beginning of the Homewood Christmas Parade! The annual Homewood Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting ceremony is presented by Homewood Parks and Recreation. Float registration information is available at www.homewoodparks.com. Immediately following the Parade, Old Saint Nick himself will light the Christmas Tree in front of City Hall and will then be available for pictures. Please contact Rusty Holley at 205.332.6705 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
