Join us on 2nd St. for a special evening of holiday cheer.

The City of McCall and the McCall Area Chamber invite you to celebrate!

Come for a McCall tradition, the lighting of the downtown Christmas tree and stay for Santa, Mayor Bob's holiday wish, music, treats, and more festive surprises.  The tree will light up at approximately 6pm. Remember, to give our McCall Parks and Rec crew a high five for decking out the tree!

Stay later for Shop Local, Shop Late night, as participating downtown businesses will be open late with specials and sales for holiday shoppers.

Wear your holiday cheer gear and be there with bells on!
