Christmas festivities in Frontenac


FRONTENAC, KS – The holiday season is approaching quickly, and to help its citizens feel the Christmas spirit, the City of Frontenac will light up its downtown with a special ceremony featuring Santa and Mrs. Clause on Sunday evening.  

For over 20 years, the City of Frontenac and Frontenac Mining Days Festival committee have organized an event to bring excitement and joy in preparation for the upcoming holidays to its citizens.  

Patrons are encouraged to gather in the downtown area of Frontenac at 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27 and listen to the choir which will be made up of 50 elementary students and 25 of the junior high and high school students.  

Around 5:20 p.m., Mayor David Fornelli will flip on the Christmas lights that will illuminate the downtown area as well a tree made of lights in the Frontenac Commons.  

Once the festive lights are on, the Frontenac Raider Band will lead Santa and Mrs. Clause, who will be perched on the fire truck, to city hall. Children will be allowed to take free photos with the Yuletide couple as well as decorate wooden ornaments and write letters to Santa. Hot cocoa and cookies will also be available for attendees. 

Frontenac Library Director and the President of the Frontenac Mining Days Festival Seth Nutt said he enjoys seeing the community come together for this annual holiday tradition. 

“I really like seeing the kids get excited for Christmas,” he said.
