The arrival of Santa Claus in Shafer Park marks the beginning of the Old Tyme Christmas Celebration!!

Santa Claus arrives in Shafer Park on a firetruck at 6:30PM as the small Holiday parade travels down Reeder's Alley, crosses Potomac Street (near the Potomac Street Creamery) and travels down Park Lane towards the festivities. The parade ends at the Town Christmas tree in Shafer Park. The Mayor and Santa light the tree as visitors listen to Holiday music and stroll around the Park, which will be decorated with an array of lights and luminaries.

Children can drop off their letters to Santa in the box near the Town tree.
