Mulvane Christmas Celebration December 1, 2018 | 4:30-8:00pm | downtown, Mulvane, KS

It's A Tradition

This small Kansas town, with its historic architecture and a downtown anchored by the Mulvane Historical Museum (housed in the former Santa Fe Depot), is great year-round but Christmas really brings out the charm and spirit of the community. The Chamber Christmas Celebration is a highlight of the season!

Mulvane Christmas Celebration

Starts with a Donkey Parade at 4:30 pm

Festivities begin with the traditional Donkey Parade. The parade is led by adorable Miniature Donkeys announcing the arrival of Santa & Mrs. Claus coming to town on Mulvane Fire Truck #1 on their way to Santa’s Mulvane Headquarters. The parade goes North from the Mulvane Co-op, East along Main St, South down Prather around Main Street Park, back on Main St pausing to drop-off Mr. & Mrs. Claus at Santa's Mulvane Headquarters, and ends at the Mulvane Historical Museum. Bring your friends and family to welcome Santa & Mrs. Claus!

Evening of festivities from 5:00-8:00 pm

A magical night for all ages! Stroll through downtown to see the lights, warm up with hot drink and cobbler, stop by the petting zoo, take a carriage ride, visit St. Nicks Kids' Games & Face Painting, bring a toy for the Toys for Kids Drive, and OF COURSE visit Santa at his Mulvane Headquarters. In this Christmas-crazy town, the options are endless....

Santa's Mulvane Headquarters

Bring the kids to visit Santa & get a treat from Mrs. Claus at Santa's Mulvane Headquarters at 101 E Main (The Pix Community Center.) The kids can also spend time with the elves in Mrs. Claus' Reading Corner, write that all important letter to Santa so he has the full wish list, and make an official Headquarters ornament to take home. Bring your camera to snap a photo too!
