Claysburg to host Christmas in the Park

CLAYSBURG — Claysburg’s sixth annual Christ-mas in the Park will be held Nov. 23.

The Christmas Parade, starting at 3 p.m., will begin the festivities. The parade starts at the Claysburg American Legion and proceeds to the Claysburg Community Park via Bedford Street.

Immediately following the parade, activities begin at the Community Park. There will be crafts for the children and visits with Santa, Mrs. Claus and Buddy the Elf.

Holiday music will be in the air and there will be treats provided by area organizations and churches, a petting zoo and games for the children.

The Children’s Choir will lead up to the end of the event which is the lighting of the Christmas tree, park decorations and the giant-sized Community Christmas Cards.

Claysburg PAST, CK Cares, Claysburg-Kimmel Alumni, Greenfield Township Government and Claysburg Volunteer Fire Company are essential in organizing the event. The generous contributions from community sponsors and area businesses make Christmas in the Park a reality.

The decorating and setting up of the giant-sized Christmas cards will take place Nov. 16. The committee welcomes all workers on that day.

The event is open to the public.

Participants do not need to be from the Claysburg area to attend.
