1. Traditional

It’s “Christmas on the Prairie” at the Overland Trail Museum in Sterling. Walk around the museum grounds adoring the twinkling lights and beautifully decorated buildings from 5 to 7 pm, Mondays, Dec. 9, 16 and 23. Have a cup of hot apple cider and cookies or roasted chestnuts while enjoying various festive entertainers. In the spirit of Christmas all open house dates at the museum are FREE admission.

2. Memorable

Sterling Public Library is the home of the annual Parade of Trees, held throughout the holiday season, with hundreds of decorated trees on display. An Open House is scheduled for Thursday December 19, from 5 to 8 p.m., when the building lights will be turned down to allow the trees to shine! There will also be refreshments and life music for all to enjoy.

1. Lights!

Watch the traditional lighting of the Historical Logan County Courthouse and town square in Downtown Sterling and you just might think you are in a quaint “Hallmark Movie” town! The lighting ceremony will take place at 5:30 pm, on Friday, November 29. The RE-1 Valley Children’s Chorale and SHS Jazz Choir will be singing Christmas carols on the Courthouse steps starting at 5:15 pm, and following the lighting ceremony.

2. Cocoa!

…with Santa. What could be better than sipping on hot chocolate and visiting the Jolly Old Elf? What a wonderful way to share some holiday cheer with your family. Plus, Reggie the Reindeer – a real, live reindeer! - will be making an appearance! All this is just steps away from the Logan County Courthouse, so after the lighting ceremony on Friday make your way over to the Christ United Methodist Church, 104 S 4th St., from 6-8 pm.

3. More Lights!

Next Thursday, December 5, is the community’s favorite Parade of Lights in Downtown Sterling. You will not believe your eyes! With the spectacular Courthouse and town square in the background the parade on Main Street is another scene right out of a holiday movie. Bundle up and make sure you are front and center when the sparkling parade entries and floats get started at 6 pm.
