Downtown Washington will be the place to be when the holiday season kicks off in grand style on Saturday Dec. 5 with its annual Hometown Holiday!
Hometown Holiday is a can’t-miss celebration that will light up the downtown in more ways than one! Saturday, December 5th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., this event, sponsored by Unity Bank, First Energy Foundation, Arcana Toys & Games, and Rediscovered, will once again feature not one, but two tree lightings, first at the Town Hall and then in the Downtown Pocket Park by the Town Clock. Join the parade from one tree lighting to the next and await the arrival of Santa Claus around 5:15 p.m.
Also taking place that evening are meet-and-greet photo opportunities with Santa Claus at Arcana Toys & Games located in the center of the downtown, plus the Gingerbread Man, Frosty the Snowman, a penguin, Santa’s elves and other seasonal characters. There will other activities throughout as well as DJ Mitch Hess playing your favorite holiday tunes. Chanukah will also be celebrated with the lighting of the Menorah.
The Washington BID, host of the festivities, also thanks this year’s Tree Sponsors, Stew’s Auto Body, Wyckoff’s Tree Farm, JP Landscaping, Washington Borough, and the Washington Borough Volunteer Fire Department.
