Hazleton Area youngsters can have their picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus for free on Saturday, December 3rd, thanks to the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce’s Downtown Committee. It’s all part of the “Welcome Santa” promotion, now in its thirteenth year under the direction of the Chamber.
The festivities will begin at 10:00 a.m. with performances by the students of Sherri O’Donnell’s All That Dancin’ a chamber-member dance studio. Santa and Mrs. Claus are scheduled to arrive at Citiscape, located in The Hayden Towers Markle Building shortly after the performances, at approximately 11:00 a.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with several children, will be arriving via a fire truck from the Diamond Fire Company and accompanied by ambulances from APTS.
Through the cooperation of the Downtown committee members, the first 100 children will receive free photos with Santa, assorted candy and snacks compliments of Giant and Weis Markets, orange drink, compliments of Farmer’s Dairy, art supplies, compliments of Sargent Art, Inc. and coloring books and crayons, compliments of the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance.
Bill Spear, chairman of the Chamber’s Downtown Committee, said the “Welcome Santa” project has been a great boost to holiday shopping for center city businesses. “We are always looking for ways to promote the Downtown and to assist the merchants in whatever way we can.”
