Santa set for annual appearance in Cranberry

Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

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
