The traditional Dreidel and 30ft Christmas tree lightings help kick off the holiday season at Newtown Park on Thursday, Dec. 5! The event will feature Santa, his reindeer, and other fun activities.
Festivities start at 6 p.m. with Christmas and holiday songs by local elementary school choruses, followed by the lighting of the tree and Dreidel on the Park Place event lawn at Newtown Park.
Old St. Nick will hear youngsters’ wish lists. Free hot chocolate and coffee will be available while they last, and s’mores, too! There will be crafts, music, a food truck, and kids' activities. The celebration concludes at 8 p.m.
Guests are invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots to the event or to City Hall. Donations are also accepted at the City’s fire stations. Donations are being accepted through mid-December.
