The traditional lighting of the Christmas tree is another highlight of the day’s activities and a full choir is expected to serenade patrons with popular Christmas carols. If that were not enough of a Christmas treat, Santa Claus will make a special stop and will come bearing gifts for each child who participated in the event. Before he takes off again to deliver gifts to other waiting children he will stick around a little while longer to take photos with everyone.
