On the green families can decorate the tree, warm their hands by the fire barrels, sing carols and roast marshmallows and chestnuts with the community while waiting for Santa to arrive at the bandstand around 5:15 p.m. Horse-drawn sleigh rides will be offered.
At 6 p.m., the festivities move back to the church for the magical sounds of hand bell ringing and caroling with the choir.?Free hot cocoa, coffee, eggnog, cider and yummy desserts will follow downstairs in the church.
