Christmas on the Square - Sunday, December 4th
Tree decorating contest
The annual Avenue of Trees is displayed around the courthouse square every December. Area businesses purchase the locally grown trees and decorate them. All trees must be decorated by December 4th to be judged, two prizes will be awarded in each category. It's a wonderful sight and a beautiful display around the square. For more information or to reserve a spot, call City Hall at 402-336-3570 or email Lisa Beethe at firstname.lastname@example.org
Prior to Santa arriving in Tecumseh, the children are treated to a free hot dog, chips and soda meal sponsored by the Tecumseh Chamber of Commerce. While the children waiting for Santa, they can enjoy a free horse-drawn wagon ride.
