If you like to sing holiday carols, come join the fun.  Along with the caroling, we’ll enjoy some free hot drinks along with cookies from the North Pole Bakery along with reindeer games for the kids. Bring your camera, Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with Frosty, and Santa’s Elves will be there for photos after the tree lighting. There will be some fun giveaways and prizes.

The SSP Mayor’s Youth Task Force will be hosting the 10th annual Mitten and Hat Drive and teaming up with Ashes Fire Truck Rental. The Task Force invites the community to bring hats and mittens to take a ride on Santa’s Fire Truck. The hats and mittens will be donated to Neighbors, Inc. and/or the SSP School District. 

Please dress warm for the event.  The entire event will take place outdoors at the tree.  For additional information, contact Deb Griffith, community affairs liaison, at 652-554-3230 or
