Starting at 3:00 PM, enjoy some refreshments handed out by Girl Scout volunteers. Keep an eye out for Santa, who will be arriving to hand out candy canes to the children. Bring your camera as you will have an opportunity to have your picture taken with Santa. The Girl Scouts of Lynnfield and the Tri-M Music Honor Society from Lynnfield High School will kick off the Community Singing segment of the event, which will feature holiday selections. The festivities will conclude with the lighting of the trees at approximately 4:45 PM that evening.
