Drive-Thru Christmas Event details
Town Staff is planning for you and your family to have a fun-filled evening at this year's Christmas event. Due to COVID-19, the event will be a drive-thru held in the Town Hall parking lot on Friday, Dec. 4 from 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Please enter from southbound Collins Road.
Here's a look at what we have planned:
- "Amped" up Christmas lights and decorations;
- Play "Guess the Christmas Movie" - There will be clues to popular Christmas movies throughout the light display. Write down as many as you can and be entered to win one of several great prizes (like a basket and gift card from Hope Coffee)!
- Hot cocoa kits to-go;
- Arts and crafts kits to-go for the kiddos; and
- Santa will be socially distanced on our antique fire engine. Be sure to wave at him!
While we wish we could gather together as we have in the years past, it is of utmost importance that we keep all families and Town staff members SAFE!
