It’s that time of year again… Time to deck the halls, hang up the lights, decorate the tree…
It’s time to celebrate Christmas in Carlyle.
Join us as we celebrate the season with our favorite annual events.
The City Park is ready to shine bright, Santa is ready to listen to all the boys and girls Christmas wishes, the carolers are ready to sing and the houses are ready to be filled with Christmas cheer. Bring the whole family out as we welcome our favorite time of the year.
The City Park will light up at dusk on November 24th as our famous Christmas Lights start to shine bright. The Christmas Lights will stay on in the Park for the entire Christmas Season until January 1st. Take a drive through the City Park to view the lights!
You won’t want to miss this beautiful display!
