A Victorian corner is also planned. Father Christmas, musical groups and a Christmas Cafe will utilize the town hall and old firehouse.

There will be no admission charge. Colors will be traditional: silver, gold, white, cranberry, pink or red. Artificial materials are not acceptable. Anyone who wants to participate should contact the Town of Genoa at 782-8696.
