Folks will start gathering at 5 p.m. on the first block of Spring Street (Memorial Park up to First Street) to await the arrival of Santa Claus. There will be caroling, hot chocolate, and coffee.

Santa will light the tree, followed by more caroling before people head up to Brickworks on Nichols Street. There the festivities include photos with Santa, crafts with Island Rec. Local harvest soups and spiced apple cider can be purchased.
