The Historic Springfield Holiday Society was established in 2017 by neighbors wanting to enhance the holiday experience in Springfield. SPAR and HSHS have shared a mission of improving Historic Springfield’s quality of life, raising spirits, and fostering fellowship between all neighbors. To provide the best possible community engagement moving forward, HSHS is being incorporated into SPAR, including the seasonal events, popular traditions, and boundless energy for which HSHS has been consistently recognized. Activities have included celebrations for Mardi Gras, St. Patrick's Day, and especially the Winter Holidays, where lighted wreaths and trees decorate Main Street.
The HSHS focuses on the following initiatives
- Wreaths on Main Street - Wreaths are installed along the Main Street corridor in the mid-November and remain displayed through the Holiday Season until mid-January.
- Springfield Holiday Tree - Now finding it's home at Sesquicentennial Park, the Springfield Holiday Tree has become a tradition each December with an official Tree Lighting, as well as being the meet up spot for the Springfield Holiday Bike Ride
