Future Neenah Inc. will host the 20th annual A Very Neenah Christmas from 6pm - 8pm, Friday, December 1. Visit Downtown on Friday evening to do a little ‘window shopping’ of a different sort! Each year Downtown businesses create elaborate window scenes with live mannequins as part of this very special event which has become a beloved Neenah tradition.
The Community First Credit Union Rudolph Run leads this evening of fun. Families run or walk down Wisconsin Avenue from Shattuck Park toward the Community Christmas Tree in Gateway Plaza. Registrations are accepted at www.neenah.org. The fee includes fuzzy reindeer antlers, and a flashing red light. At the end of the run, approximately 6:15pm, everyone is asked to partake in the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree accompanied by a community sing-along.
In addition to the live mannequin displays and the fun run, there will be live performances by the Fox Valley Christian Academy hand bell choir, Valley Academy Nutcracker ballet dancers, A Crooner’s Christmas, Kurt Stein’s School of Music and the Neenah High School Madrigal Singers.
Families can enjoy roasting marshmallows in front of the Future Neenah office as well as enjoy horse drawn carriage or wagon rides in the 200 block of Wisconsin Avenue. Santa will once again be at Associated Bank to greet children.
New this year is the Nicolet National Bank Ice Sculpture Garden in Gateway Plaza and Meet the Snow Princesses in the former Bank Mutual building.
