Traditional, annual event that promotes community spirit within the Town of Wakefield MA. The downtown area will be closed to traffic and a holiday atmosphere will fill the air. Parades, Horse Carriage rides, entertainment, shopping, Santa and Mrs. Claus will even be making an appearance!
In the spirit of the season, the Wakefield Community Partnership (WCP) is launching its first annual holiday stroll toy drive. Toys collected will be distributed through the Boys & Girls Club of Wakefield to families in need. There will be a number of drop off locations for the toy drive during the stroll including Santa’s Workshop on Centre Street and additional locations to be announced. Toys should be new and unwrapped. For every toy donated, individuals will receive a raffle entry for a number of great holiday themed prizes including movie and theater tickets.
The WCP will also donate 10% of all sponsorships to the First Baptist Church of Wakefield and Tall Spire Nursery School. “Our town suffered a devastating loss with the fire at the church. The holidays are about giving back, community and family and the WCP is honored to donate a portion of sponsorships to the relief efforts for the church and pre-school,” said Paul DiNocco, WCP president.
