Ipswich – A day of holiday festivities and cheer will be held Saturday, December 18 from 11:00 am to 2 pm. Greet Santa as he arrives at the Ipswich Town Wharf. Sing carols with Buddy the Elf while awaiting Santa’s arrival. Jingle bells will be available for purchase. Jingle the bells and follow our honored guest and Buddy the Elf on a festive “Jingle Bell Walk” to the Ipswich Town Hall at 45 Green Street. Keep an eye out for the “Grinch”!
Once Santa arrives at Town Hall, he will receive children,11 and under, to take photos. Parents are urged to bring a camera. Each child will receive a gift bag from Santa as well. Following their visit with Santa, the children can have their faces painted, play festive games, and create holiday crafts. The Rotary Club will serve pizza, hot cocoa, cookies and more in the cafeteria.
Tickets will be available for purchase in order to enjoy delicious food, face painting, and crafts. There will be free games to play as well as raffles for Christmas trees and other great items!
All are encouraged to bring unwrapped gifts fit for a child to support the Marines Toys for Tots. For more information go to www.ipswichrotary.org. Proceeds from the Jingle Bell Walk will be donated to local businesses and towards funding an international project.
