SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – When Santa lights Springfield’s town tree, a sense of awe comes over the crowd of families who anxiously awaited his arrival, quickly followed by cheers!
Once again, Springfield on the Move and the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce are collaborating to bring the holiday program to downtown Springfield.
The chamber has invited Santa and Mrs. Claus to come to town and have arranged for the tree, Santa’s house, and caroling.
The annual family holiday program will begin at 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1, at the SOM office at 6 Valley Street. Children will pick up their sticker maps and visit downtown businesses and organizations to get special treats and stickers to put on their maps. When maps are full, children will return to the SOM office for their goodie bags filled with surprises.
Caroling with the Springfield Community Band and the Springfield Holiday Community Chorus will begin in the People’s United Bank parking lot on Main Street near Santa’s House at 5:30 p.m. Santa will arrive at 6 p.m. to light the town’s Christmas tree. He will then greet excited children in his special house.
