Penn Hills municipal officials will kick off the holiday season from 7 to 9 p.m. on Dec. 5, with the annual Penn Hills Holiday Light Up at the municipal building, located at 12245 Frankstown Road.
The Penn Hills NJROTC Color Guard will open the evening, followed by Christmas carols from the Penn Hills High School Choir Ensemble and the official lighting of the tree by Mayor Anthony DeLuca Jr.
Glitter Dot and Dapper will provide entertainment, and children can visit with Santa, his elves and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
The Penn Hills Rotary will also partner with Dream Photography for “Pictures with Santa.” A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Rotary as well as the Penn Hills High School Interact Club.
Finally, the annual holiday train display will be open. Admission is $1 per person, and those proceeds will benefit Police Helping People Daily (PHPD), a nonprofit organization.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
