Geneseo’s famous Christmas Walk is going strong as it celebrates its 32nd anniversary on December 9, 2017.
The event kicks off with its popular Geneseo Jingle Run at 8:30 a.m. This 5k event is only $20 and includes a commemorative t-shirt with pre-registration.
Everyone will enjoy shopping throughout the day in downtown Geneseo. Gentlemen, take a load off at one of the local breweries or pubs while the ladies shop, shop, and shop some more! Children’s activities fill the afternoon with special crafts, face painting, writing letters to Santa, making reindeer food, and much more. Children’s choirs will also be featured at various times throughout the afternoon.
As the sun goes down the night heats up with the Walk’s ever-growing lighted parade at 5 p.m. People line the streets as music and twinkling lights fill the evening air. Numerous floats, marching musicians, and animals parade southward down State Street into the downtown district. After the parade, visitors can turn their gaze to the business-front windows. Both living and still scenes will celebrate the Season.
