Join us on Thanksgiving Night when people and families alike flood downtown to look up at the beautiful Canopy of Lights! Each year Santa Claus makes a special visit to Downtown Moultrie to see the children and kick off the Christmas season. When you explore, you will find live reindeer, pony rides, a train, and more.
Downtown shops begin to open at 4 pm, just two hours before the Canopy of Lights is turned on for the season. After you watch the lights come on, take a stroll around downtown to visit the many shops and restaurants that are open.
Downtown Moultrie’s Canopy of Lights dates back to the 1930s. Beginning with only four strands of lights hung from the top of the courthouse to the four corners of the square, the canopy has grown to include over 9,000 lights stretching throughout Downtown Moultrie.
