Olde Tyme Christmas - Friday, December 6, 2024 at 6:30pm 

The arrival of Santa Claus in Shafer Park marks the beginning of the Olde Tyme Christmas Celebration!! Santa Claus arrives in Shafer Park on a firetruck at 6:30PM as the small Holiday parade travels down Reeder’s Alley, crosses Potomac Street (near the Potomac Street Creamery) and travels down Park Lane towards the Town Christmas tree in Shafer Park. 

Mayor Long and Santa will light the tree and the Park will be decorated with an array of lights and luminaries. Children can pick up treats and apples and talk to Santa. 

The Mayor and Council and the Park Board sponsor this annual event which is held on the first Friday of December.
