Bring the family down to the Red Mill Inn this Saturday for the annual Christmas Tree lighting in Baldwinsville.
"This is our fifth year holding this event and we hope this year will be better than ever," said Tony Saraceni, a director with the Greater Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce, which helps organize the event.
Featuring craft tables for children, hot chocolate, snacks and horse drawn carriage rides around Paper Mill Island, not to mention an appearance by Santa Claus, who will listen to each child's Christmas wishes and pose for a photo with them, this year's event will be held beginning at 5:30 p.m. Saturday Nov. 27 at the Red Mill Inn in the village.
"This is a great way to share a past time with your friends and family," Saraceni said. "We are fortunate in Baldwinsville to have these exciting events available throughout the year. I am convinced that this is the reason that Baldwinsville still remains the tight knit community it is."
A long-standing tradition in Baldwinsville, the event was moved from the old Harrington Fire Station to the Red Mill Inn when the chamber began organizing it.
"We have been fortunate to have a business partner such as the Red Mill Inn to hold this annual event. They provide everything we need to make this a topnotch tree lighting," Saraceni said.
