Denton’s Hometown Christmas
Christmas Caroling, Carriage Rides and “Love Lights Tree” Celebration
The Town of Denton invites you to celebrate the Christmas season by attending the annual
Caroling in the Park,
set for Thursday evening, December 4 starting at 6:00pm.
The festive evening
held in Harrison Park, will include various church choirs from throughout the community singing traditional Christmas songs.

a fantastic family event and a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season. Come out and sing along with us!
In addition, help kick off our hometown’s Christmas season by taking a leisurely
carriage ride through town. At 5:30pm Harrison Park will be the hotspot for young and old alike, where visitors will find
carriage rides (free with a canned food donation).
