Every year, the first weekend of December, Live Oak hosts Christmas on the Square. This year we will celebrate our 32nd year. The festivities begin on Thursday, December 1st at 5:30 p.m. with the Jingle Bell Fun Run/Walk through downtown Live Oak that begins and ends at Millennium Park where Santa will be waiting with hot chocolate and cookies upon your return. Friday evening will be filled with great food, live entertainment, dancing and fireworks. Early Saturday morning downtown Live Oak is filled with arts and crafts vendors, dozens of different food vendors, a car show, an agriculture exhibit and live entertainment at Millennium Park. As you enter Christmas on the Square you will be able to enjoy many classic muscle car and custom antique cars. We also have an agriculture exhibition with the newest equipment available and also antique equipment that was used long ago.
We host over 250 vendors offering arts and crafts, hand crafted wood works, quilts, furniture and much more. As visitors progress through the arts and crafts booths, they can’t resist the smell of the delicious and diverse foods in the food court. You can enjoy many different types of meals and tasty snacks.
In Millennium Park you will find entertainment from the best of Live Oak’s very own local talent. Singing and dancing are a major part of the show. You will enjoy your local favorites singing Christmas songs and presenting dance recitals. While enjoying the entertainment, be sure to visit Santa in Santa Land to share your Christmas wish list.
Once the sun goes down and the vendors pack up their booths, the day isn’t over yet. The stars of this show are just making their way down Ohio Avenue to shine in the Annual Christmas Parade of lights. This year we will be "Lighting the Way to Christmas." Numerous floats are entered every year to compete for several titles in the parade competition. Young and old alike delight in the spectacular and dazzling displays of lighted mobile creativity.
