Santa’s Arrival, Fireworks Highlight Dublin Holiday Gathering

The Dublin Holiday Gathering will feature some traditional activities -- the arrival of Santa, hot chocolate and model trains-- and at least one decidedly unconventional Christmas treat - a fireworks display.

Nov. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Planned by Discover Dublin Inc., the borough’s community and business revitalization group, the annual Holiday Gathering is scheduled for Saturday, December 8 from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Dublin Fire House.

“It should be another memorable evening,” said Eugene Miller, event organizer. “Our volunteers have put a lot of work into making this a special event for children and adults alike.”

While Santa is expected to arrive at 6:15 p.m. to light the tree, the big mystery is how he will get there. There’s no telling how the Jolly Old Elf will make his appearance this year. It could be by helicopter and or it could be by a horse-drawn carriage. Either way the elves will be there to accompany Santa and help him light the tree.

After the tree is lit, Santa will point to the sky to set off a spectacular fireworks display that will brighten the night sky. The show is the finale from the borough’s 100th Anniversary Celebration in September that was cancelled due to rain.

“Fireworks in December is not something a lot of people have experienced,” said April Donahue, from QNB Bank. “It will be a special way to culminate our 100th year celebration as a town.”

In addition to Santa and fireworks, the evening will feature:

■ FREE Horse and Carriage Rides
■ FREE Hot Chocolate and Cookies
■ Live Nativity with Petting Zoo
■ Pictures with Santa (bring your own camera)
■ Railroad Train Display (1 p.m. - 9 p.m.)
■ Live music by local performers

Fire engines carrying Santa’s elves, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will visit Dublin neighborhoods from 4:40 pm to 5:30 pm, and end up back at the firehouse in time for Santa’s arrival.

Visitors are encouraged to show their holiday spirit and bring a toy or non-perishable food item to help the less fortunate.  Donations will go to the Dublin Food Pantry.
