Mt. Pleasant Christmas Celebration December 2022

The Mt. Pleasant Christmas Celebration, formerly Dickens Christmas, is held annually in historic Downtown Mt. Pleasant, taking place Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3. Come home for the Holidays and wander the streets of downtown Mt. Pleasant as the scent of pine boughs, roasted almonds, and kettle-corn float through the air and the sound of carolers and holiday merrymakers accompany your stroll.

Have breakfast with Santa, take a hayride to see the Christmas lights, bring the kid’s to one of the “make and take” crafts, shop the downtown stores, and end the weekend by watching the Lighted Christmas Parade where Santa Claus will be pulled in his sleigh by Clydesdales!

Food and entertainment will fill the area with sights and smells that get you ready for the Holiday season.

Enjoy hot chocolate while stopping by one of the many warming stations. Whether it be the Lighted Christmas Parade, a pancake breakfast, crafts at the library, or strolling through boutiques in downtown Mt. Pleasant, there is something for people of all ages to do.
