Flushing is proud of one of its most heartwarming traditions — the Annual Flushing Candlewalk. The Candlewalk first began over thirty years ago and has grown into one of the county’s largest events! Thousands of softly glowing candles will light your way along the streets of Flushing. It’s a sight not to be missed! Two evenings of holiday music provided by local singers, choirs, ice sculptures, wood carvings, live performances, “Lionel” train display, s’mores, refreshments, and horse drawn wagon rides are the business owners’ way of saying “thank-you” to the community.
You’ll find chestnuts roasting on an open fire in the middle of Main Street, warming stations throughout the area, and Santa Claus arriving in a grand parade to light the ceremonial tree. The Flushing Candlewalk Tree is a beautiful tradition for all generations.
The 2017 Flushing Candlewalk kicks off this year on December 7th, with a Parade of Lights that bring Santa into town to receive the key to the city, and then the official Christmas Tree is lit. After Santa arrives, he will sit in Goggins Hall visiting with kids of all ages.
You will also be able to take in the sights and sounds at local businesses along Main Street for some “old fashioned” holiday festivities!
