If you have ever shaken and held up a snow globe, you're familiar with that enchanted, winter wonderland scene. Welcome to Corning's Gaffer District this Crystal City Christmas season!
Sparkle is held annually on the first Saturday in December, and this year, it will commemorate 45 years of holiday memories in our downtown. We're searching our archives and reaching out to the community, in hopes of embracing those cherished family memories and traditions.
Market Street will be closed and the Centerway Square Christmas tree will be aglow. You'll enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides, the sounds of our local and regional choral groups, a live nativity, unique and handmade craft vendors, a wide variety of food and free activities for children, as well as the whole family! Explore our downtown's incredible shopping and dining, take a photo with Santa in his historic Crystal House and discover the unlimited locations for that perfect selfie in one of our many #exploreCorning Crystal City Christmas backdrops!
