Both evenings will be filled with great Christmas traditions: chestnuts roasting on an open fire, a bonfire in the Town Square to keep warm, strolling carolers throughout the town, horse-drawn carriage rides and most importantly, Santa will be at the Edelweiss Guest House throughout the whole event. A Christmas Market will be at the Harmonie Verein (It’s not too late to sign up, we are still looking for crafters and artisans, click here for more information) The town-wide scavenger hunt will be back this year with lots of fabulous prizes. Plenty of delicious food and drinks will be available, and this is a fun event for the whole family to enjoy.

The 2nd Annual Augusta Gingerbread House Contest: There will be two major categories, Local Landmarks and Heartwarming Houses, broken down into age groups. All entries will be on display both evenings from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Augusta Visitor Center. The visitors will be the judges for this event, so don't forget to vote for your favorite house.
