“Over the ground lies a mantle of white, a heaven of diamonds shine down through the night…..”

The Greater Honesdale Partnership invites you to “Winter Wonderland” on Friday, November 29th and Saturday November 30th.

Thanksgiving Weekend starts on Friday with many shopping and dining opportunities at the shops and restaurants in Honesdale. Vendors will be located inside Honesdale Community Church and on Main Street from 10 AM to 5 PM. Our local businesses offer a large variety of great products ranging from gifts, clothing, and unique items for the young and old.  They are famous for their warm hospitality and knowledgeable staffs.

Friday, November 29 will be the highlight of the weekend with our Annual Santa Parade. The parade starts at 6:00 PM at the Top Notch parking lot on 4th St., goes up Main St., turns right on 10th St., and proceeds to Honesdale’s Central Park.  Applications to participate in the parade can be attained by emailing ghp@visithonesdalepa.com.

The ceremony immediately after the parade will delight young and old. It has been the perfect way to get into the spirit of the season for many years. We will be lighting the tree in the center of the park as well as our beloved star on Irving Cliff, and singing carols with candlelight. Our friends at 95.3 DNH & Classic Hits 105.3 will be leading the festivities and will be helping us all greet Santa!

It will certainly be a night to remember!

On Saturday, November 30th, the opportunities to support our local small businesses will continue. It is Small Business Saturday in Honesdale and our locally owned and operated small businesses will be eager and willing to make your day special. You can find a complete list of our members before you make your list and check it twice!
