Santa arrives in Del Ray this coming Friday, Dec. 2nd. at the annual Del Ray Holiday Tree Lighting. The kids can visit with Santa, there will be thousands of Luminaries along the Avenue and special “Holiday Spirits” that will be offered by many of the retail businesses in Del Ray. The Tree Lighting and visit with Santa will take place at 6 pm, at the lot at Mt. Vernon and E. Oxford Avenues. We will also sing holiday favorites led by our own Kate Moran Band and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and cookies. After Santa lights the tree he will hand out candy canes and a photographer will be available to take photos of your children with Santa which can be e-mailed to you. Also look for a special appearance by the Del Ray Carolers.
