The artMOBILE will be giving out grab-and-go craft kits that can be done on site or at home. The expected line-up of food trucks includes Friskie Fries, What’s Up Cupcake and Gnarly Vines Farm.
After sundown, Mayor Paul Coogan will be joined by special guests to light the City tree for the first time this season.
“Last year, we weren’t able to bring the community together for so many of our favorite traditions- including the tree lighting,” said Mayor Paul Coogan. “I hope that, after watching the parade, families will stop by City Hall to get a bite to eat, enjoy some activities and kick off to the holiday season with our tree lighting.”
