Stockton residents and the Cedar County community are invited to join the city of Stockton for all things merry and bright for the Christmas Lighting Ceremony beginning 4:30 p.m., Friday Nov. 30, on the Stockton square.

Santa Claus will be taking requests at Simmons Bank from 4:30-6:30 p.m. for all the good boys and girls in the area who wish to bring a special ask to the jolly holiday favorite.

The Grinch will be on hand at Mid-Missouri Bank and the staff of Great Southern Bank will feature Frosty the Snowman-themed getups to add new fun to the growing event.

The second annual lighting ceremony also will feature numerous businesses on the square opening their doors for the evening’s festivities, crafters, vendors and civic groups will be in attendance, as Christmas music, caroling, treats and eats will all be a plenty during the city’s Christmas kickoff.
