Mark your calendar: Santa flies into Southborough on Saturday, December 2

It’s a bit frightening to think about, but. . . Christmas celebrations and festivities in Town begin the week after next.

Santa will be making his traditional pre-Christmas trip to town on the first Saturday in December – December 2nd. Weather permitting, he’ll be flying in by helicopter again.

(After all, reindeer can only fly on Christmas Eve, and the North Pole is quite a long trip by land. It just makes sense.)

The helicopter will land on the St. Mark’s field at the corner of Routes 30 and 85 at noon. He’ll greet the crowd and work his way through to cross the street.

He’ll then enter the Community House for his true purpose. There, he’ll get a chance to find out from children what they want for Christmas. (The doors close at 3:00 pm and there can be quite a line, so don’t wait too late to show up!)

The annual event is organized by Southborough Kindergroup. I’m still waiting on some of this year’s details from – so stay tuned.

Santa Day is one of several traditional Christmas celebrations in town the first Saturday in December. Others that I’ve confirmed are taking place that day are the Library Christmas Tree decorating party for kids and St. Mark’s Church’s Annual Christmas Bazaar. Stay tuned for details on those events as well.
