Santa Claus will be in Gardner tonight to help the community kick-off the holiday season during the 21st annual “Christmas in the Park” Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
The festivities will start at 7 p.m. on Nov. 28, tonight, in Cornerstone Park. Mayor Dave Drovetta will deliver a Christmastime message, and a special guest will be selected to help flip the switch to thousands of twinkling lights in the city park.
Santa will accept visitors at his workshop in the park following the event. His workshop will also be open from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 4 and Dec. 11.
