The Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower will be a location for several holiday activities this season. Each Tuesday and Thursday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Tower Tunes Live concerts will be played from 5:15 – 5:30 p.m. by local musicians. These musicians will choose their own music so listen for a wide variety of holiday tunes while shopping in Jefferson.
The schedule is:
Tuesday, Nov. 26 – Pat Richards
Tuesday, Dec. 3 – Lois Last
Thursday, Dec. 5 – Rick Morain
Tuesday, Dec. 10 – Rhena Lane
Thursday, Dec. 12 – Yvette Bardole
Tuesday, Dec. 17 – Wendy VanderLinden
Thursday, Dec. 19 – Danille Curtis
On Thursday, Dec. 5, Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit with children in the Paul Nally Observation Deck of the Bell Tower from 6:45 – 7:30 p.m. as part of the Christmas Tree Lighting activities in Jefferson.
The Tower also celebrates the holidays with Christmas bells that light up in the observation deck of the tower. Board member Craig Berry worked on restringing the bell frames with LED lights to be a beacon of Christmas throughout the holidays in downtown Jefferson. These lights can be seen for miles as people approach the community.
On Wednesdays, get a take out lunch and come listen to the Tower Tunes Live concert on the Square.
Musicians are invited to play a tune on the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower on Saturday between 9-11 a.m. Just check in at the lobby of the tower. Music is available and assistance to learn about the instrument will be available.
