It's going to look a lot like Christmas in Newtown next Friday.
The borough's annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held Friday, Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Newtown Firehouse on Liberty Street. After the tree is lit, the Santa House will open. Children can meet Santa and have their picture taken.
Santa will also be accepting visitors on Sunday, Dec 2 after the holiday parade until 4 p.m. Other Santa House hours are: Dec 8, 9, 15 and 16 from 2 until 4 p.m.
This will be the tenth year Santa welcomes Newtown's kids to share their holiday wishes. In 2003, a group of Newtown Borough businesses arranged for the Santa House to be built by a carpentry class at the Middle Bucks Institute of Technology.
There is no charge to meet Santa, however donations are accepted. Families should bring their cameras.
