 Christmas Tree Lighting & Family Sing-A-Long

Friday, December 6, 2019
6:30 - 7:00 PM
Vestal Memorial Park Gazebo
Four Corners

Mark your calendars for Vestal's Annual Family Christmas Carol Sing-a-Long and Christmas Tree Lighting. Have fun singing with the Vestal Community Chorus. The Vestal Fire Department will be serving free hot cocoa, cider and doughnuts. The evening will  end with a special visit from Mr and Mrs. Claus at 7:00 PM.


Santa would love to hear from all the boys and girls in Vestal! Write your letter and Santa will send you one back. Ask him a question and he will answer it! Santa's mailbox will be located on the front porch of the Recreation Office located at 516 Front St., Vestal, from Saturday, November 23 through Saturday, December 7, 2019. Due to the large volume of mail Santa receives, he cannot accept letters after December 7. Don't forget to write your first and last name and put your address somewhere so Santa knows where to mail his response. You may also bring your Santa letter to the Tree Lighting.
