In 1985, the Candlelight Pavilion hosted its first Christmas show, and for more than 30 years we have continued the tradition of writing and producing each of our Christmas shows with a focus on the spirit of the season and bringing family and friends together. We invite you to continue your Christmas traditions with us as we celebrate with an all-new story, The Perfect Christmas. As is always the tradition here at the Candlelight Pavilion, Santa and Mama stay after the performance to meet guests. Don’t forget your cameras!
Sue and Paul began this tradition in 1988 after seeing it advertised in a local newspaper...We have never missed!
This year the town is not lit up because last years theme was Christmas on the Moon? This year, the town let the new people choose the theme and it was worse, Christmas On Mars!
It took all the kids of the world to join Santa and Mrs Clause to get the town lit up and put the Christmas Spirit back into everybody's hearts!
