Towson Winterfest kicks off this weekend with a tree lighting and visit from Santa Claus on his way to his workshop in the Old Hutzler Building next to Barnes & Noble off the Towson Circle.

This Saturday, December 3, 2011 from 6-8pm, enjoy Santa’s arrival by fire engine to Olympian Park, see the official Baltimore County tree get lit, celebrate the season, and begin an exciting month in Downtown Towson.

There will be free hot chocolate, cookies, and musical performances! The tree will be lit around 6:25pm, and Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive shortly after, heading to their workshop for good times and photos with kids. (Make sure to bring your own camera for photos with him!)

The Towson Chamber of Commerce has a lot of fun activities planned for the holiday season. Here is a list of everything they have set up for December!

So bundle up & enjoy Downtown Towson on Saturday evening for some good cheer. It should be fun!
