Opelika’s Official Kick-Off Event to the Christmas Season will be at Courthouse Square on Wednesday, December 4th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. This is a free event for all!

The event will offer numerous photo opportunities with artificial snow and an inflatable snowglobe that attendees can walk inside. An inflatable slide will be another main attraction for this event.

 Throughout the event, the Lee County Sheriff's Office will be collecting toys for children ages 2 to 10 as a part of their annual Christmas Toy Drive. All donations will be put in the Giving Back Sleigh at Courthouse Square. Some toys that are always needed are basketballs, footballs, volleyballs, family board games, and dolls.

East Alabama Medical Center is the presenting sponsor of this event. They will have fun tents and giveaways at “Peppermint Parkway” on Courthouse Square.

At 5:30pm, there will be a reindog parade around courthouse square. All furry friends and pet owners are encouraged to attend. It is free to participate, but registration is required. Prizes will go to most festive, best dressed pet and owner combo, and most creative.

Starting at 6:00pm, attendees will get to see Christmas performances from Opelika City School choirs as well as our local churches during our Choir Competition.

To conclude the event, at 7:30pm the Opelika High School band will lead all guests from the corner of South 9th Street and Avenue A down to Opelika Christmas Tree for an official tree lighting!
