Christmas on the Square & Parade of Lights

This event has ended

The 2022 Christmas On The Square is going to be BRIGHTER THAN EVER

Saturday Dec. 3rd, 2022 4-8PM. the Parade of Lights starts at 6PM.

Most towns simply have a traditional Santa Parade. However, we are most fortunate that here in Hancock, NY we combine it with our Annual Tree lighting, Parade of Lights, Period Carolers, & Outdoor S’mores over the outdoor Fire-pits in the Hancock Town Square. This year the Park itself will be decked out in a lights show. We will have outdoor heaters to help keep the families warm, but please dress for the weather. There will be vendors selling hot cocoa, and light up toys for the children.

Christmas on the Square was created by the Hancock Area Chamber of Commerce, but we combine forces annually with the Hancock Fire Department’s for their Annual(14th Year) Sandra Karcher Memorial Parade of Lights. This all centers around the Hancock Town Square at 20 E Main St.

Children can participate in Rudolph’s Reindeer Run as village wide scavenger hunt with fun prizes for the winners, taking place in our Historic Downtown and Waterfront Districts. We encourage all of our downtown businesses and villagers to decorate their shops and homes for the event, and floats and participants will still be competing for “Best in Show” for floats decorating, use of lights, and general Holiday Spirit.
