8th Annual

Hollis Holiday Luminaria Stroll &
Town Band Concert 2022

Saturday, December 10

Hollis, New Hampshire

Please see 2022 Front Door Contest winner/photos here,
and 2022 Gingerbread House Contest winners/photos here!


...and more photos!

Hollis' historic residential neighborhood and Monument Square will transform into an enchanted village.  Over 2000 glowing luminaria lanterns, a twinkling town evergreen, Santa's tractor parade, a chili & cornbread supper, an afternoon filled with shopping for holiday crafts, listening to musical performances on the Squires Patio in Monument Square, and the celebratory Hollis Town Band concert are a few highlights.

When twilight approaches, Santa will travel through the center of town by lighted tractor and hay wagon to his destination: the Lawrence Barn on Depot Road, where he will visit with young friends.  Parents may take pictures of their children on Santa's lap.  Donations during Santa's visit are appreciated to help offset the day's expenses.  Homemade gourmet holiday cookies are available for purchase during Santa's visit.

More holiday themed events unfold throughout the day:
