This free event will include fun family activities such as face painting, singing hayrides, a petting zoo and more! Be sure to stop on by and visit the Woburn Fire Department's Smoke Safety House, see the ice sculpting demonstrations, or have a bite to eat from one of the many food vendors.

You will be entertained throughout the evening with live musical performances of holiday music. The children can meet Santa and tell him their wish lists, and everyone will enjoy the lighting of the Commons!
