Holiday Fun in Liberty

Posted on December 1, 2022 at 12:35 PM by Claire Rodgers

It's the most wonderful time of the year and Liberty is making it easy to get in on the fun. Here are five events in Liberty to light up your holiday season. 

Hometown Holidays

Saddle your reindeer to kick off the season with holiday shopping, pictures with Santa, crafts, games, the new Holiday Treats Tour. Cap the night with the Mayor's Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony! Pick up a map and follow the fun through downtown Liberty, stopping in participating businesses where you will find holiday snacks and beverages, toys and s'mores kits to enjoy at the fire pits.
