Description: A Celebration of Childhood Memories from the Great Riverbend Area! The Festival is a multi-day event starting the Friday after Thanksgiving where the downtown corridor of Jerseyville is transformed into a wonderland of holiday lights and activities for the entire family. There are Kids activities which are free of charge and each child will walk away with a small prize when they finish (Candy or Trinket). There are also free photos with Santa and Santa’s arrival marks the kickoff of the event when he arrives by helicopter. There will also be Holiday Hay Rides for the children pulled by some of the finest antique tractors in Jersey County. Some of the businesses will transform their storefront into various holiday activity hotspots. Elf School - learning the ways of an elf, The North Pole Post Office - getting your letter sent to Santa on time, and Mrs. Claus’s Bake Shop - find all the holiday treats to get the season off to a great start

There is also a wonderful picnic area on the main thoroughfare where families can gather, enjoy music and talent from far and wide. This area also serves as the designated area for the patrons of the local bars and restaurants to patronize those bars and then rejoin the family with their beverage at the picnic tables to make memories to last a lifetime listening to some great Bands, all of that is at the State Street Stage. Under the City of Jerseyville Tent the school district will be well represented with numerous bands, choirs, and other organizations performing throughout the day
