Main St., will have storybook readings.

Father Christmas will arrive at 6 p.m. and will lead a procession on Main Street to the tree, which will sit at Oak and Main streets throughout the holiday season. Father Christmas will lead a tree lighting ceremony at 6:30 p.m.

Live music will continue throughout the evening and horse drawn wagon rides will go through the village from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Rides will start and end in front of Robert Goodman Jewelers.
