Christ­mas in Mid­dle­ton

Santa, Christ­mas tree light­ing, hot choco­late at Cen­ten­nial Park

Annapolis Valley Register - - COMMUNITY - BY LAWRENCE POW­ELL THE SPECTATOR MID­DLE­TON, N. S.

Hun­dreds of kids of all ages turned out for the an­nual Christ­mas Tree Light­ing Cer­e­mony, visit from Santa, and lots hot choco­late at Cen­ten­nial Park in Mid­dle­ton.

There was a bon­fire, mu­sic by the Idle Threats, a free skate at the arena, and fire­works dur­ing the Nov. 30 fes­tiv­i­ties. And it was Down­town Mid­night Mad­ness with some lo­cal shops open later with great deals.

Santa and Mrs. Santa ar­rived by fire truck, but tag­ging along for the ride was the Grinch for tried to steal the show but was quickly up­staged by the Jolly Old Elf. Santa, of course, was the cen­tre of at­ten­tion for dozens of kids who got to rhyme of their Christ­mas lists as they sat on his lap.

The fun con­tin­ued on Dec. 1 with a Com­mu­nity Christ­mas Party in the morn­ing at An­napo­lis East El­e­men­tary School which in­cluded a bouncy cas­tle, face paint­ing, crafts, mu­sic, cookie dec­o­rat­ing, and another visit from Santa.

On Dec. 2 there was another free skate at the arena in a week­end of fun.
