In the tradition of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, each year during the first weekend of December (second weekend after Thanksgiving) downtown East and West Dundee come to life in a Victorian Christmas celebration with small town atmosphere.

The weekend kicks off with tree lighting ceremonies, hot cocoa, a visit from Santa and live portrayals of Christmas scenes in the merchant windows along Main Street. Saturday begins with the cornerstone event: the Spirit of Christmas Parade. Other popular events include Gingerbread House Making, Festival of Trees, Santa's Petting Zoo and, Christmas tree sales by the Dundee Lions Club in Grafelman Park.

Earth Day, Every Day Community Gardening Project

Earth Day, Every Day
Village Hall
villagehall@wdundee.org

In celebration of a continuing commitment to the Earth Day movement's goal - to create change through small steps that add up to a large collective action - the Village of West Dundee sponsors volunteer community gardening days in April, June and August. Each event focuses on maintenance and beautification of a specific area of the public landscape.

This initiative would not be possible without many dedicated community volunteers. Individuals, families and groups are all welcome to participate. Business sponsors are also sought to help defray the costs of plant material and other supplies. For more information or to pledge your participation, please contact Village Hall.
