Christmas in Lancaster

Mayor’s Tree Lighting and Tuba Christmas

There are few better ways to kick off the Christmas season than by attending the Mayor’s Tree Lighting and “Tuba Christmas.” The event takes place in Penn Square, the perfect location for all Lancaster residents to see the spectacle in person.

Kitchen Kettle Village

Of all the areas in Lancaster that celebrate the Christmas season, few do it better than Kitchen Kettle Village. Dubbed Kitchen Kettle Christmas, the village is a winter wonderland designed to give families a Christmas they’ll never forget. Visitors can have breakfast with Santa Claus and a gingerbread man mascot, or dine in the evening with Mrs. Claus.

Christmas Tree Train

There’s nothing quite like traveling on the Christmas Tree Train to Leaman Place Grove to find your family tree! Once families have chosen their tree, it’s cut and shipped back to the station where children will be entertained by holiday classics and rides on the Tinsel Trolley.

We here at Lancaster Nissan hope to see you out and about taking part in the festivities this holiday season!

Lancaster County is best known for its huge Amish population, but there are a lot of things to do here besides buy cheese in Amish Country (not that Amish Country cheese isn’t worth the trip). Whether you live here or you’re planning to visit, check out these fun things to do in Lancaster.

The American Music Theater is a wonderful place to go when you’re in the area. This year, you can catch the American Music Theater Crooners Show, in which singers perform hits from iconic crooners. The Fulton Theater is another interesting spot to visit—restored from the 1800s, it hosts a variety of performances, including dance troupes.

If you have kids, you have to spend some time at Dutch Wonderland, a family amusement park, or the Caribbean Indoor Water Park. Then there’s Central Market, the best place around to buy food—the produce is super fresh and everything is grown naturally. A market may not seem like a tourist stop, but visitors and residents alike can spend whole days eating their way through the place.

And if you’re interested, take some time to learn about the Mennonite culture at the Mennonite Information Center and the Amish Farm and House Tour.
