Community Christmas

Check Facebook for more info as it becomes available!



The Community Christmas Committee is responsible for organizing the community events and holiday displays that make Excelsior Springs a magical place during the holiday season. We cannot do it without your help! We hope you’ll volunteer to help with one of our events, but remember, just attending our events helps to continue this wonderful Excelsior Springs tradition of decorating and celebrating the holidays through an all volunteer effort.

Lane of Lights
The Lane of Lights is located along Lovers Lane in East Valley Park and is open through December 31.
