Medford’s annual holiday celebration will be held Saturday, November 30!
The schedule is a bit different this year as we will once again attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for caroling with santa hats!
Please note: we are still collecting toys for the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, so please let family, friends, and neighbors know if they are planning to attend to please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the celebration.
The celebration’s schedule is as follows:
Jingle Bell 5K Walk/Run – Starts at 2:30 PM – Medford Senior Center (101 Riverside Avenue)
City Hall festivities start at 2:45 PM. Featuring: Radio Disney, non-profit tables, Jingle Bell tree festival, Medford’s own Hank Morse of WROR, ice sculptures, Wally the Green Monster, Blades the Bear, face painting, pony rides, moon bounce, and food trucks, including Medford’s own Frozen Hoagies and the Food Network’s food truck finalist Roxy’s Grilled Cheese (and more!).
Santa Claus will arrive at 3PM and meet the children in the Mayor’s Office until 4:30PM.
A large group of carolers will meet at McNally Park (Webster Street) just before 4PM and will end up in Medford Square.
Caroling with santa hats to break the world record begins at 5 PM in Medford Square.
The large group will then proceed back to City Hall for the lighting ceremony, which will conclude the day’s events.
Join us to help break the world record again and to ring in the holiday season in style!
