Christmas Tree Walk

Like everything else in 2020, our 19th Annual Christmas Tree Walk will look different this year, but nonetheless fueled with holiday spirit! Per traditon, downtown Maplewood will be decked out for the holidays and the Christmas Tree in CNB park will be lit up for all to see! While Santa is staying safe at home, we’ve obtained an exclusive North Pole mailbox where children can come and drop off their letter. Letters that include a self addressed envelope will recieve a return letter the following week!

Many of your favorite businesses will be open and offering holiday specials, discounts, and deals. Some restaurants will offer outdoor dining or you can pick up dinner to enjoy in one of our outdoor dining tents. Please consider coming out to support small businesses at the Christmas Tree Walk and all season long!
