Hillsboro Holly Days

I love Downtown Hillsboro. I have so many memories of wandering around my Dad's JCPenney store, eating at Supernatural Deli and Hillsboro Happy Days. During Happy Days they had a cow pie flinging contest off of the US Bank building. Some of that small town charm will be on hand during Hillsboro Holly Days.

Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa Claus is in the Civic Center lobby! Come enjoy warm cocoa, cookies, and holiday music while you wait to tell him your Christmas wishes. Bring the whole family to the Hillsboro Holly Days celebration sponsored by the Hillsboro Downtown Business Association. Santa will join in the Tree Lighting Ceremony, where the Holiday Tree that reigns over Main Street will be lit to shine over the city throughout the holiday season. This event is free and registration is not necessary. 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the Civic Center in downtown Hillsboro.
