The Annual Christmas on Walnut Street Festival is held on the first Saturday of December! There are many food and craft vendors, a kids' zone, and live entertainment. The afternoon begins with a visit from Santa at his workshop (organized by the GCS Elks Lodge Number 1892) in the Spring Park pool pavilion where he spends a few hours hearing all the kids' wish lists! The day concludes with a 1-mile Jingle Bell Fun Run organized by the Clay Striders and a beautiful night Christmas Parade organized by the Green Cove Springs Business League, right down Highway 17! This city-wide Christmas tradition is something you don't want to miss!
