Santa Claus is coming to town for the Seasons of Celebration event in Wallingford!Wallingford Seasons of Celebration 2014

If anyone had any doubts about whether or not the holidays have arrived, let me put them to rest. Of course, Thanksgiving will soon be here in all it’s basted, browned, bubbly glory, and the holiday craft fairs are in full swing. But another upcoming event is sure to bring out the holiday spirit in everyone: The Wallingford Seasons of Celebration.

Scheduled for December 6th from 1PM to 5:30PM, this annual event started decades ago at the downtown train station as a meet-and-greet for Santa Claus, but in recent years has moved uptown and expanded to include a variety of fun activities. The town is sponsoring most of the activities, which are free, and most will take place in or around Town Hall.

Here’s list of the happenings:

  • O little town of Wallingford...listen to your favorite Christmas carols at the Seasons of Celebration!Kids can visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus from 1PM to 4:30PM in the foyer of Town Hall
  • There will be a petting zoo for kids from 1PM to 4PM

This year’s Seasons of Celebration event again promises to be fun for kids of all ages and an exciting kick-off to the town’s holiday celebration.
