On Wednesday, Dec. 3 beginning at 6 p.m., join your friends and neighbors for the annual Family Night on the Moodus Green.
This fun-filled event begins with a parade that kicks off at 6 p.m. that includes the Moodus Drum & Fife Corps., East Haddam Volunteer Fire Dept. and of course, the Clauses – Santa and his wife.
First Selectman Mark Walter will greet the crowd, and then holiday songs & Christmas carols will be sung by local chorus students, followed by the traditional tree lighting on the Moodus Green.
The rest of the event, which comes to a close at 8 p.m., will include more fun – such as meeting Santa at the Methodist Church (hosted by Youth & Family Services) and a visit with Mrs. Claus at the East Haddam Free Public Library.
Children can make reindeer food and decorate cookies at the East Haddam Little Village preschool, and all can enjoy a dessert downstairs at the Moodus United Methodist Church.
An exciting new addition this year is Letters to Santa. Our friends at East Haddam Parks & Rec will be delivering letters to the North Pole. Simply bring your Christmas wish list to EHFPL during the event (or write one while you’re waiting to meet Mrs. Claus), and you’ll get a personal response from Santa (be sure to include your name and address).
Thanks to everyone who makes this free, family friendly event possible. We’ll see you December 3rd at 6:00, Happy Holidays!!
