'Tis the Season as CityCenter Danbury celebrates Light the Lights, its annual Holiday Gathering to welcome Santa, on Saturday, November 30th, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, on Library Plaza. The fun filled event is always anticipated and full of good cheer.
This event features music, dance, cookies, hot chocolate, and Santa's arrival by fire engine. Best of all it's FREE and children of all ages are invited. For information, visit www.citycenterdanbury.com or call (203) 792 1711.
Light the Lights begins at 5:00pm with music provided by Summit Entertainment. Santa's arrival in one hour - to the expectations of little ones, their family and friends - will continue with a special performance of "Hot Chocolate" from the 2004 motion picture The Polar Express that was performed in the film by Tom Hanks.
Carols and pop holiday songs will follow, performed by Saint Joseph's School Children's Choir under the direction of Jennifer Doherty. Regal Brass will encourage a sing-along as they play "Jingle Bells," "Silent Night," "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," and many more holiday favorites.
At 5:45pm, Mayor Mark Boughton will lead a countdown to Light the Lights as Santa arrives soon thereafter by fire engine. From 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, children may visit Santa at Library Plaza. Don’t forget your camera for memorable photos. Free cookies and hot chocolate will be provided in front of the Danbury Public Library.
