Thank You to the Rainbow Girls

December 10, 2013

Each year after the Tree Lighting, the Rainbow Girls host Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Masonic Hall.

There, children have the opportunity to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus and tell them what they want for Christmas. The Rainbow Girls serve cookies and hot chocolate to all of the children in attendance.

The Billerica Holiday Festival Committee wishes to thank the Rainbow Girls for their time and efforts in making this special part of the day possible!

Thank You!

Santa on Fire Truck

December 6, 2013

The “Santa on the Fire Truck” program that happens tomorrow is completely run and coordinated by the Billerica Elks. The Billerica Holiday Festival committee does not organize this program nor do we know their schedule.

Santa, Mrs. Claus and the cast of characters conclude their day with an appearance at the Tree Lighting, but this is the only time where these two events converge.

The Committee apologizes if the article in the Lowell Sun was interpreted to suggest that we organize the “Santa on the Fire Truck” program.
