Christmas Light Parade

The Christmas Light Parade is held the 1st  Sunday in December. There are many imaginative uses of lights on machinery, vehicles, people and animals. It’s a festive way to begin the Christmas season!  The Light Parade is judged by the Chamber President, City Mayor and the Publisher of the Colby Free Press.  Prizes are awarded to the top two placers in each of the five categories.

Santa City

Santa City is an annual event involving putting up Christmas decorations in Fike Park and turning the Scout Hut into a winter wonderland where Santa can be found. 

Santa City is open weekends for both children and the “young at heart” starting the day after Thanksgiving on weekends, and then in the evenings the last 2 weeks   before Christmas until Dec 24th. It is a holiday wonderland with charming scenes of woodland characters, and of course Santa and Mrs. Santa. No admission charged, but donations are accepted. Santa City is funded entirely through donations.
