On November 30th, Christmas officially begins in Manchester.
The Community Tree Lighting Ceremony kicks off the holiday season at the Factory Point Town Green on November 30th from 6pm- 6:30pm. During this ceremony, the giant Christmas tree will be lit along with a bunch of other Christmas lights throughout the town.
To start things off, visit the Manchester Visitor Center.
Here, you'll be able to learn about everything going on in Manchester that week.
Or, just stroll through town and see what you happen upon.
You don't need to get tickets or RSVP to an event to take in all of the wonderful lights and decor Manchester has to offer.
However, every year the Manchester Vermont Lions Club runs an Elf Express.
The holiday train departs from R. K. Miles Depot Station on December 21st and 22nd and is filled with Christmas spirit. Throughout the ride, elves will walk through the aisles to spread holiday cheer. There be even be a visit from Santa! Children and adults are welcome, just be sure to purchase a ticket beforehand for your desired time.
After a day or activities, spend the night at the Wilburton Inn.
You can also take a tour of the historic inns throughout Manchester and other nearby towns who have decorated themselves for the holidays.

The parade takes place on December 7th and will loop from Manchester Elementary School along School Street, south on Bonnet Street, east on Main Street, and turn down Memorial Avenue to return to the start.
