“This is really an opportunity to be immersed in your community, and it’s a chance to explore what Hamilton has to offer. Plus, you’ll see some friends along the way,” Grubb said.
The festive event will be larger this year with more features. Of course, luminaries will line the streets and shops will be open late, getting everyone in the holiday spirit. There will be continuous laser light shows at the Butler County Courthouse, U.S. Bank Downtown, and Hamilton’s Urban Backyard and check out Armstead Park for a special surprise. The Historic Log Cabin will be open from 5 to 8 p.m.
“This is a unique, fun event, where you get to discover Hamilton in a different light,” Grubb said. “The event has grown every year, and we are expecting an even bigger crowd this year.”
