It’s hard to believe with all this crazy weather that last week felt like this summer, this week we braved Hurricane Sandy and next week we will be working toward THE AVENUE at White Marsh Annual Tree Lighting! This year marks a very special holiday season for THE AVENUE at White Marsh. Celebrating a milestone of 15 years shared with our wonderful local community, we welcome back Jamie Costello, of ABC2News, as our emcee. Jamie shared our very first tree lighting ceremony with us at THE AVENUE at White Marsh our first operating Christmas season. We are ecstatic to have him returning to kick off this 15th year’s holiday season.
Starting at 6 p.m. on Nov. 16 ...
If you are attending, the drive lanes from Tilted Kilt to Verizon will be closed to traffic in order to provide an area for the stage and standing room for our guests! Part Harmony will begin their performance at 6:00pm from a stage set up in front of the theatre. We will have glow necklaces, magic glasses and paper reindeer hats for children in attendance. These giveaways are available while supplies last and distribution will begin at approximately 6:30pm.
At approximately 6:45pm, Jamie Costello will take the stage to welcome our guests, as well as Santa and Mrs. Claus! By 7pm we will begin the countdown...and if we have enough believers out in the crowd, the tree will light, the snow machines will kick on and Part Harmony will continue caroling until 8:00pm.
Once the tree is lit, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available in front of the tree for photos and Red Brick Station will provide a cookie and hot chocolate for the children after their visit. The line for visits with Santa will be set up to enter on the Tilted Kilt side of the plaza.
Remember to bring your camera and hope to see you there!
