Merry Christmas to All and Welcome to the 2016 Season of Overly's Country Christmas®!
Opening Night: Blessing of the Lights and the Lighting of the First Bonfire: Friday, November 18, 6:00 pm
Join our Overly's family of volunteers as we gently reflect on all that we've gone through to get here: laughs, labors, losses, love. We reminisce of companionship, community support, and the dedicated work that has brought us to Opening Night. It is a night where we join to share our goodwill with those in need and donate to others -- new, unwrapped toys, nonperishable food items and pet food. As we Share the Magic of our tradition with others, Christmas Village comes alive with the music of the season, the crackle of the bonfire and Santa's Ho Ho Ho as he arrives to listen to the wishes of eager children.
Join us in blessing of our lights, the lighting of our first bonfire and Sharing our Magic by giving to those in need. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Closing time tonight, 9:00 p.m.
