Hometown Holiday is a can’t-miss celebration that will light up the downtown in more ways than one. This event, presented by Investors Bank, First Energy Foundation, Pasta Grill by Enzo, and Rossi Chevrolet Buick GMC and the Washington Business Improvement District, will once again feature not one, but two tree lightings, first at the Town Hall and then in the Downtown Pocket Park by the Town Clock, where Chanukah will also be celebrated with the lighting of the Menorah. Join the parade from one tree lighting to the next and await the arrival of Santa Claus around 6:15pm.
Also taking place that evening are meet-and-greet photo opportunities with Santa Claus at Hometown Fried Chicken (Bring your cameras!) with Frosty the Snowman, Mr. Penguin, and Santa’s Elves, and other seasonal characters including a host of "Dickens" special guests. There will be other activities throughout as well as DJ Mitch Hess plays your favorite holiday tunes. And as a special attraction you won't want to miss The awesome Violanta and its Holiday Sounds!
Among the other special activities planned for that night: Walk around performances by the Little Brass Band of the Lehigh Valley. Free Holiday critter activity sponsored by Family Clean Communities program with Diana Dove at Hometown Fried Chicken. Free Ornament project with Joyce Lahmidi of Delarah Parties at Washington Kid Care.
