Come down on Saturday, December 7 for Hometown Holiday. Our annual celebration kicks off with Santa at the firehouse taking pictures with the kids! Santa will be there with his elves from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM.
Then, around 5 PM, the MCM Marching Trombones will lead all our little elves (your kids) in an Elf Parade up South Orange Avenue, where our annual tree lighting ceremony will take place at 5:15 PM at the PNC Bank Building (76 South Orange Avenue). There will be live music and a dance performance by Maria Priadka School of Dance, cookies and hot chocolate, and fun will be had by all!
Kids should feel free to bring jingle bells or anything to ring or shake along with the music as the Elf Parade heads up So Orange Avenue.
