This November 27th, Norwood’s Recreation Department will be holding their annual Holiday Extravaganza on the Common Green, from 1:30-4:30, where the Hobday Tree will be christened with lights and an expected magical appearance of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will be made.
“Hoping for great weather for a really great wholesome family event,” said Recreation Director Linda Berger.
A parade with the Claus family leading the procession, will prelude the night, with the High School Madrigals performing holiday songs for all, while local girl scouts will offer hot chocolate as the late fall afternoon temperature drops.
And once the temperature drops, all are invited to go inside the Civic Center for some music, face painting, and arts and crafts.
Assistant Town Manager Bernie Cooper, organizes the event, with support from the Norwood Amateur Radio Club, REACT Volunteers, and Norwood’s Spirit Club. The whole event will remind many of a Norman Rockwell painting, and capture the essence of Norwood’s holiday spirit and commitment to community.
“It’s a fantastic kickoff to the holiday season,” said Berger. Don’t miss a truly wonderful hometown event!
