Fall Activities

Save this Thursday December 4th as Light Up Artesia kicks off the holidays here in Artesia.  This year, Santa is escorted into town during our Parade of Lights!  The parade kicks off at 6 p.m. and Santa will be at the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center to listen to Christmas lists and have his picture taken.  Many merchants stay open late and offer great deals, and the downtown is lit with thousands of lights.  Save Thursday, December 4th on your calendars and meet Artesia MainStreet downtown. It’s not too late to enter a vehicle or float in the parade, visit artesiamainstreet.com for the entry form. If you are interested in becoming a vendor during Light Up Artesia, visit our website, or stop by the MainStreet Office.
