The Towson Tree Lighting Ceremony will be this Saturday, December 4, 2010 beginning at 6 pm.

Come to Downtown Towson at Olympian Park just off the circle near the Towson Town Center mall to enjoy the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus on a fire engine & the tree lighting in the new park at 6:30! The Baltimore Sheraton North will be providing hot chocolate and cookies, and local stores will be offering specials.

Santa will be ready to have little ones visit & share their holiday wishes, and have photos taken at Ridgely & Ferrens on Allegheny Avenue! (Bring your own camera if you want a photo!)

The event, put on by the Towson Chamber of Commerce, will be showcasing local talent in performances by the Perry Hall Middle School 8th Grade Jaguar Choir, Chapel Hill Music Sensations, Anna Apicella School of Dance, and Towson University’s a cappella group Purrrfect Pitch.

Barnes & Noble will have a book signing, and Santa’s Workshop opening in the building.

All of this is part of the Towson Winterfest Celebration all December long. Come join in!
