All guests will remain in their vehicle while touring Hometown Christmas. Treat spots will take orders from your vehicle and serve up goodies to go.
Guests can pre-purchase a ticket to enter for $5 per car online at: https://www.maderafair.com/christmas
With Madera County’s approval and local community support, the fairgrounds will host lights, sights and treats in a socially safe, community focused Christmas experience.
Madera Evening Lions has joined forces with the Madera District Fair to bring the traditional Christmas Light Parade to the fairgrounds with a new “reimagined” format.
All “floats” and decorated spaces created by local businesses and organizations will be stationary while guests will drive past to observe the lights and sights, a creative solution that will allow us all to share Christmas cheer while meeting CDC and State COVID guidelines.
Interested businesses or organizations should contact Madera Evening Lions Club President, Abel Perez at 559-706-1241, email email@example.com or visit maderafair.com/christmas where an easy online form is ready for entries.
In addition to the Lions’ role, the Madera Ministerial Association is preparing a beautiful nativity scene with songs of the season.
Treats of course will be on the route for purchase, including holiday favorites like hot cocoa, tamales and sweet things.
Madera’s own Toffee Time created by the Lancaster family will sell one evening, Los Girasoles are bringing the tamales, churros and champurrado, specialty popcorn from fair time vendor Log Cabin Concessions and good old-fashioned corndogs from Red and White concessions.
