Santa will be making his eagerly-anticipated annual appearance on Nov. 22 at Cranberry Township Municipal Building.

The annual visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus, officially marking the start of Cranberry's holiday season, has been set for 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, in front of the Cranberry Township Municipal Center.

Free family activities, games, crafts and refreshments begin at 6 p.m. inside the building. Holiday music will be provided by the choir of the Dutilh United Methodist Church.

The event also will kick off the 2013 Cranberry Holiday Tree Gallery inside the building, an annual fundraising project in which more than 20 local nonprofit organizations display smaller trees decorated in themes that reflect their missions.

Shortly after arriving on a specially outfitted fire truck, Santa is scheduled to greet the townsfolk, throw a switch lighting the Community Tree on the center's front lawn and then head back to the North Pole.

Individual visits with Santa will not take place until his return on Dec. 14 and 15. Registration for “Milk and Cookies with Santa” on one of those dates must be made in advance. A fee of $14 per child ($11 for Cranberry residents) is payable at the time of registration. To register, contact Cranberry's Parks & Recreation Department by phone at 724-776-4806, ext. 1129 or online at

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
