Holiday celebrations set in Arlington

A variety of events bring Christmas spirit


Several events designed to bring out the Christmas spirit will happen this month in Arlington. 

Saturday includes a holiday open house at Roots to Wings store from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Also Saturday is the second annual Christmas tree lighting in Village Park. The tree will be lit at 6 p.m. 

Included in the event will be carolers, hot chocolate will be provided by the Fraternal Order of Police and Santa Claus will visit courtesy of the Arlington Volunteer Fire Department. A book reading and signing will be taking place by Sabrena Lozo at 5 p.m. in the Arlington Public Library.

“The whole objective is to create a family community building event,” Kelsea Wolfe, one of the organizers, said.

Santa will also be in the area Sunday at the Arlington Volunteer Fire Department’s pancake breakfast. The event, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., is the only fundraiser for the department. 

President John DiGiorgio said the money raised will help with updating equipment. 

“It will be nice especially since we didn’t get to do it last year,” he said. 

Another holiday event is an Ugly Sweater 5K Run and Walk hosted by Wolfe’s Eagle Athletic Club at 9 a.m. Dec. 11. 

The annual Arlington Post Prom Christmas lights contest and soup supper will be from 5-8 p.m. Dec. 12 at the Arlington Veterans Club. The Post Prom Committee has been hosting the event since 2016 when the Lions Club requested they take it over.
