The blinking of multi-colored lights. The hustle and bustle of shoppers looking for holiday gifts. Angelic voices singing in jubilation.
The sights and sounds of the holiday season abound in Joplin each November and December as our community comes together to celebrate. The Joplin Holiday Experience kicks off with the lighting of the Spiva Park Christmas Tree, and the weeks that follow bring people to our city to see musical and theatrical performances, shop at our retail stores, dine at our restaurants, and visit our downtown and residential neighborhoods to look at decorations.
