Jingle Through the Market
The city of Galt will host Jingle Through the Market, a reverse parade, on Saturday, Dec. 5. This is a free family event. This creative magical holiday drive-thru experience will be at the Galt Market grounds from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Festive stationary floats, vehicles and booths will greet holiday guests as they cruise their way through the Market grounds. Cruising through the market is free and offered on a first-come, first-served basis; however, a limited amount of “Elf Express Pass” tickets will go on sale Nov. 25. The $10 per car express pass will allow ticket holders to enjoy hot cocoa and treats while they “jingle” through the Market at a designated time slot. Only 25 tickets will be sold per time slot, 6:30, 7, 7:30 and 8 p.m.
If you, your organization or company would like to be part of the reverse parade, contact the special event manager for more details and entrant forms at 209-366-7115.
