All City of Kannapolis offices will be closed from Thursday, December 23 through Monday, December 27, in observance of the Christmas holiday. There will be no delay in garbage and recycling collection service over the holiday. There will be no yard waste, limb or loose-leaf collection Thursday, December 23 - Monday, December 27.

We hope you will join us at the Celebration of Lights and Winterland Express located at Village Park, 700 West C Street thru December 30. We have added more lights – we have over 250,000 and fun for you and your family to enjoy. Admission to the park and viewing of the lights is free.

The Winterland Express train runs every evening until December 30 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) from 6-9 p.m., Sundays – Thursdays, and from 6 – 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays.  Ride the train through the park and count down the 12 Days of Christmas as you view unique holiday light displays. Rides on the double decker carousel are also a special way to enjoy the Celebration of Lights.

Favorite activities such as making s’mores around the fire pit and listening to the Singing Bears perform return as usual. Again, this year, kids of all ages will be able to visit Santa in his studio each night.
