The Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower will be a location for several holiday activities this season.
Each Tuesday and Thursday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Tower Tunes Live concerts will be played from 5:15 – 5:30 pm by local musicians. These musicians will choose their own music so listen for a wide variety of holiday tunes while shopping in Jefferson.
On Thursday, Dec. 6, Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit with children in the Paul Nally Observation Deck of the bell tower from 6:45 to 7:30 pm as part of the Christmas Tree Lighting activities in Jefferson.
The Tower is also receiving a make-over of the Christmas bells that light up in the observation deck of the tower. Craig Berry has been working on restringing the bell frames with LED lights to be a beacon of Christmas throughout the holidays in downtown Jefferson. These lights can be seen for miles as people approach the community.
