To Christmas Carroll Coming December 3rd

A Carroll Christmas, the town’s aptly named annual celebration, is scheduled for Saturday, December 3.

Events include a craft show at Shalom United Methodist Church, free evening holiday rides and a food and toy drive at Benson Park.

Santa will arrive at Benson Park at 5 pm via a Greenfield Township fire truck, after a short drive through town to announce his arrival. In the park, the queens of the Carroll Festival will attend Santa Claus as he greets the children and adults gathered there to light the tree. He’ll have free hot chocolate and cookies while they sing Christmas carols. Children 14 and under can put their names on a picture to help Santa light the tree.

“Last year we raffled off a name and it was so much fun, we wanted to do it again,” explained Tammy Drobina, event coordinator since 2010. “The little boy who was selected was so excited and everyone watching was happy for him. That’s what this event is all about: a small town celebration where people can share in that holiday spirit.”
