Knightstown and its residents work hard to create a holiday season you won’t forget: from our businesses to our service organizations to individual homes, everyone pitches in. Below you’ll find events, activities, and inspiration for making the most out of this winter in Knightstown.
Christmas Tree Lighting
Join us on November 18th for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting in our town square. Santa arrives at at 5 PM and the lights come on at 7 PM. Our downtown retails stores will be kicking off their celebrations earlier in the day with Christmas Specials. Get started on your holiday shopping, enjoy some hot chocolate and cookies, and join our Ugly Sweater Contest. It’s the perfect winter moment to make some family memories.
Are your little ones already talking about what they hope to find under the tree on Christmas morning? Make the holiday even more special by mailing their letters to Santa! You’ll find Santa’s Mailbox in our town square near the tree.
Sledding at Sunset Park
If there’s snow, you’ll find most of us sledding at Sunset Park. Dress warm and bring your camera because you’re going to have a wonderful time and you’ll want to capture those quintessential winter moments. If this is your first time visiting Sunset Park, enter 206 S Hill Avenue, Knightstown, IN, into your GPS. That will take you to the shelter house to get you started.
Christmas at the Academy
Throughout the month of December, Academy Place Apartments hosts “Christmas at the Academy.” You’ll see dozens of decorated trees that are sponsored by local businesses, schools, organizations, churches, and departments of government. Christmas at the Academy begins on December 1st and runs Thursdays and Fridays from 4-8 PM and Saturdays and Sundays from 12-8 PM. There are three floors of elegantly decorated trees, as well as activities and other festivities for visitors to enjoy.
Enjoying the Architecture
It may be cold outside, but the changing of the seasons is perfect for people who love historic architecture. The leaves are off the trees, which gives you a great view at some details on our historic homes that were obscured over the summer and fall. Add in a light dusting of snow and some Christmas lights and you have a new way to appreciate our local history and make some magical winter moments for yourself.
