Do you and your children loooove Christmas like we do? Then we have wonderful news! Again this year, TOCmedia will be helping to bring the beloved Kringleville and Parade of Lights back to Waterville! Earlier this year, we were asked to again coordinate the two cherished events for the city—and we JUMPED at the chance to say yes!

Just in case Rudolph hasn’t told you, Kringleville is Waterville’s cherished Santa’s Village for Children, which will be open from November 24 to December 22, this year hosted by the Children’s Discovery Museum in Castonguay Square. Each year, thousands of families bring their children to see Santa and Mrs. Claus at Kringleville. And TOC will ensure that our community’s much-loved holiday tradition continues!

The festivities will kick off with the annual Parade of Lights the Friday after Thanksgiving on November 24. You and your family will delight to see more than 35 holiday-season floats move down Main Street, from Union to Spring Street. And guess who is the parade’s Guest of Honor? We ho-ho-hope you know!

So please consider attending the Parade of Lights and visiting Kringleville with your family this year. At Kringleville, you’ll enjoy a warm, inviting waiting room, where you can register with your Elf host as you wait to see Santa. During your wait, you and your family can relax with children’s activities, grab hot cocoa nearby, or shop downtown Waterville. Each child who visits Santa Claus at Kringleville will receive one free storybook, courtesy of the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce and Marden’s Discount Store.

So mark your calendar now! We at TOCmedia look forward to seeing you and your children this holiday season!
