What to Do at Light Up LaGrange

LaGrange kicks off the holiday season each year with Light Up LaGrange and there's plenty to do for everyone.  Light Up LaGrange is more than a lighting ceremony.  You can grab a picture with Santa or the Grinch, make a candy cane, visit an old train car or make some reindeer food.  Many of the events are free! The local stores and restaurants are open for shopping and meals, also. Or maybe you just want to take it easy and find a spot to sit on Main Street and take in all of the magical sights and sounds.  Whatever you choose to do, we hope your Light Up LaGrange experience is filled with wonder and tons of family fun!

We outlined the day for you and even included a map to help guide your Saturday in Downtown LaGrange.  To keep up with updates about the day, make sure you follow the Facebook event here.
