Perk up those ears for sleigh bells and pack the mittens, because the City of Milton will once again provide two holiday events for residents in December: the sixth annual Christmas in Crabapple on Saturday, Dec. 7 in partnership with the Crabapple Community Association (CCA); and the second annual Mayor's Holiday Open House hosted by City Council on Sunday, Dec. 15.
Sixth annual Christmas in Crabapple
Saturday, Dec. 7 is sure to have heaps of holiday cheer in Milton as the city, in partnership with the CCA, hosts the sixth annual Christmas in Crabapple from 2 to 5 p.m. in historic downtown Crabapple.
Again, Christmas in Crabapple will be a celebration throughout the Crabapple Crossroads. At Friendship Community Park there will be Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday music favorites, a holiday bounce house, funnel cakes, hot chocolate and holiday train rides.
In historic downtown Crabapple, the CCA is offering photos with Santa Claus at Blencoe and Co. Photographic Arts, a bonfire and the return of the "North Pole Passport" program featuring local businesses.
