Grab your family, friends and neighbors and welcome in winter on Saturday, December 3rd at Morrisville’s Winterfest Celebration. Begin the day at the “Breakfast with Santa” at 8:00am at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, located at Osborne and Stockham Streets. A silent auction will also be taking place at the same time. For advanced ticket purchase, which is required, call 215-321-4145. Also taking place at Holy Trinity Catholic Church is “A Secret Santa Workshop” from 8:00am until 11:00am.
Part of the day’s festivities includes the Annual Winterfest Parade starting at 10:30am on S. Pennsylvania Avenue (all parade participants should arrive at 10:00am at W. Post Road). The parade will travel through town, concluding at Morrisville High School.
Once there, enjoy activities for kids and adults in the school where the Morrisville School District’s 21st Century Community Learning Center (MSD CCLC) will host its Open House and Morrisville Winter Celebration from 11:30am until 4:00pm. The 21st CCLC was established from a federally funded grant to develop after-school activities such as tutoring and mentoring, homework assistance, community service opportunities and physical activities all provided in a safe environment.
“Part of our grant is to hold open houses like this for the community to inform people about our site and promote our after-school program,” says Darletta Berry-Johnson, 21st CCLC Director. “This is the third year we’ve been involved in this Morrisville tradition.”
