Celebrate the Christmas season with the City of Kankakee and the Kankakee Public Library and as we prepare to decorate and celebrate the beauty of Downtown. Two children (12 and under) will be chosen to wreath the lions, Readmore and Seemore, with Mayor Chasity Wells Armstrong on Thursday, December 10 at 2pm for a private photo shoot.  Visit Kankakee Public Library’s Youth Services Facebook page, our Instagram: kplyouthservices, or website: lions-online.org for information on how to enter.

Soon Downtown will be buzzing with lights, sightseers, shoppers, and good cheer for the holiday season.  On Thursday, December 3 at sundown the City Tree will be lit and the Depot lights will be dancing to holiday music on 97.3FM.  Drive through the Harold and Jean Miner Festival Square to enjoy the sights and sounds.  As you drive through be sure to keep an eye out for Santa’s special mail box.  Drop off your Christmas lists and letters to the North Pole!
