The popular “Living Windows” event is expected to bring several thousand people to downtown Jefferson City on Friday evening. Last year’s event was canceled, due to COVID concerns.
Central Bank marketing director and Downtown Association spokeswoman Angela Nale describes Living Windows as one of Jefferson City’s biggest events of the year.
“We have people who come from all over the state of Missouri. They come to Jefferson City for Living Windows on Friday night, and they stick around for the parade on Saturday. So we’re expecting I would have to say 3,000-plus people in downtown Jefferson City,” Nale says.
There will be singers and dancers in downtown storefront windows. Living Windows is from 6-9 pm on Friday, and Saturday afternoon’s parade begins at 4:30 downtown. The events are free.
Nale tells 939 the Eagle that Santa Claus will be at Hawthorn Bank. She also says you’ll see and hear a variety of singers.
“And we have tons of dance groups and high school singers and all these different groups in downtown Jefferson City. So they’re going to be in a storefront of all of the stores in all the different buildings,” says Nale.
The tree lighting ceremony at the Governor’s Mansion is at 6 pm, and Mansion candlelight tours will be offered Friday evening from 6-8.
Reindeer, carriage rides and hayrides will also be featured on Friday evening.
