First Friday-Downtown Tree Lighting Ceremony
Kick off the holiday season on Allen Street this Friday 5:30-7 p.m. with a free evening of carols, cookies and hot chocolate. Come listen to Mrs. Claus read a story and welcome Santa as he arrives to light the tree. Also, give the gift of giving by bringing a toy to donate to Toys for Tots or a canned good item for the State College Food Bank. Children, ages 12 and under, who donate will be entered to win a chance to light the tree with Santa! It is also First Friday in State College, so there will be many other events happening as well.
