Each year in December, City Hall opens its doors to the residents of Bowling Green and Warren County during our annual Christmas Open House. This year will look different than years past due to COVID-19, but we will still be celebrating.

The community is invited to drive downtown on Friday, December 4th, 2020 between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. to see the lights at both Fountain Square and Circus Square Parks. In addition, we will be hosting a “Drive-By Christmas Open House” outside of City Hall.

As you drive downtown to look at the lights, keep an eye out for Santa at 6 p.m., brought to you by the Downtown Redevelopment Authority, as he and his sleigh circle the downtown square while being escorted by BGPD and BGFD’s finest. Wave to Santa from the comfort and safety of your own car.

Please note that we are requesting that folks do not congregate in large groups in or around the parks. Restaurants and shops around the square will be open, but the goal is to keep crowds to a minimum.

After you’ve seen the lights and Santa, drive by City Hall on your way out of downtown to meet with City staff and elected officials. Two tents will be set up on either side of College Street and pre-made good bags will be passed out to visitors in their vehicles. These bags will include our holiday keepsake ornament, an “I heart BG” mask, a 2021 Annual Report and Calendar, candy canes and more.

Be sure to join us downtown for Holiday Cheer!
