Greet Santa as he arrives at Town Wharf on East Street, at the north end end of Water Street, in Ipswich.   Come sing carols with Buddy the Elf as we await Santa’s arrival.  Jingle Bells will be available for purchase Jingle your bells and follow our honored guest and Buddy the Elf on a festive “Jingle Bell Walk” along Water Street to the Ipswich Town Hall at 45 Green Street.  Keep a sharp eye out for the “Grinch”! 

Once Santa arrives at Town Hall he will receive children 11 and under while holiday carolers entertain.  Parents are urged to bring a camera.  Each child will receive a special gift bag from Santa.  Following their visit with Santa, the children can have their faces painted, play festive games, and create holiday crafts.  The Ipswich Rotary Club will serve hotdogs, hot cocoa, cookies and more in the COA cafeteria!

Tickets will be available for purchase to enjoy yummy food, face painting and crafts.  There will be free games to play as well as raffles for Christmas trees and an iPad Mini valued at $400!  The iPad is generously donated by the Institution for Savings. 

In the event of rain or heavy snow, we will meet at Town Hall.  Parking is available at Town Hall and in the Ascension Memorial Church lot.  No pets are allowed in Town Hall.  Attendees are encouraged to bring unwrapped gifts fit for a child to support the Marines in their organization, Toys for Tots!
