Santa Coming To Town Friday Dec. 3

 

The Granville area will begin ringing in the holiday season with the lighting of the village Christmas tree Friday, Dec. 3.

The annual celebration of the season will kick off at 6 p.m. in Veterans Park in the village.

Holiday music will fill the air and cocoa and cookies will be brought to the park by the American Legion Post 323 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1653 while everyone awaits the guest of honor – Santa Claus.

The fire department will whisk in the jolly old elf who will pass out gifts for every girl and boy.

But first Santa has some business to attend to and will help everyone count down to the lighting of the village Christmas tree.

“After all it takes Santa’s magic to light the tree,” Granville Area Chamber of Commerce member Denise Davies said.

Boy Scouts will bring their fire ring back to the park to help keep everyone toasty and warm and will have plenty of marshmallows for toasting.

The plan is to do something just a bit different this season to help make the event more social and less about standing in a line.

This year, Davies said, the children will be called up to meet Santa by age group starting with the littlest and ending up with the biggest kids.  “This way it gives people a chance to enjoy the fire and the cocoa and mingle without having to worry about standing in line the whole time,” Davies said.

“It’s such a nice way to welcome in the holiday season,” Davies said.
