Santa Claus will roll into Norfolk on Sunday, December 5th and a host of groups will turn out to celebrate his arrival with a variety of activities.
Santa and his entourage will be ushered into town by the highly acclaimed King Philip High School Marching Band under the direction of Mr. Michael Keough.
Prior to the parade, Santa stops in at Hillcrest Village to hand out cookies and treats and receive hugs and kisses from the residents. Shhhhh, don’t tell Mrs. Claus!
Santa’s parade will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Hillcrest Village on Rockwood Road. Santa’s elves, Frosty the Snowman, the Grinch, Norfolk Police and Fire Departments, area Scouts, and others will join Santa along Route 115, through the center of town, turning right onto Liberty Lane and ending at the Norfolk library.
At 4:00 p.m. residents are invited to visit with Santa outside of the library and have their pictures taken. Santa’s elves will be bustling around assisting all. You will be able to download your digital photos with Santa after the parade.
Refreshments will be provided by the Norfolk Recreation Department.
Children are invited to bring their homemade ornaments to help the adults decorate the town Christmas tree, which will be lit for the first time to mark the beginning of the season.
The Santa Parade and festivities are sponsored by the Norfolk Lions Club and the Norfolk Recreation Department, with the cooperation of numerous town departments, including our Fire, Police and Highway Departments and the staff of the Norfolk Public Library.
