(Atlantic) The Official start to the Christmas season in Atlantic will kick off tonight with the annual Grand Lighting ceremony starting at 5:30 at the Atlantic City Park.
Atlantic High School student Halee Glenn will be performing some musical tunes while waiting for Santa’s arrival and then Santa, Mayor Dave Jones, and LED Elf will lead the ceremony to spread the holiday spirit to get the lights turned on.
“New LED lights have been put on the trees, our City Street Department has been hard at work since early October getting all those ready and I got the sneak peak, they look gorgeous,” said Roberts. “It’s going to be a beautiful lighting.”
Following the Grand Lighting there will be carriage rides, hot chocolate, popcorn and Santa will be in his cabin to visit with the kids.
Roberts also wanted to mention that Santa is helping the Atlantic Rotary Club raise funds for his cabin.
“There are some logs that need repaired and some work that needs done so if you would like to support that project you can purchase raffle tickets for the Rotary Auction, proceeds go to help the cabin and get it repaired,” said Roberts. “You can purchase those at the Chamber office.”
Rotary raffle tickets are $20 each or six tickets for $100 for a chance at $3,000, $1,500, and $1,000 cash prizes.
