Norton celebrated the annual Festival of Lights tonight. Aside from many children waiting for one guest in particular, Fire Chief Richard Gomes, musician Terri G., Selectman Timothy Giblin and Norton Tricentennial Committee members were in attendance. The most notable guest of all, however, was Santa Claus himself who hitched a ride on a fire truck.
Children were able to give letters to Santa as part of the event with the help of Norton Parks and Recreation Commission. And through Dec. 20, they may continue to drop off a letter at the Santa House. In order for Santa to respond to the letters, it is asked that a form is filled out with the child's name, gender and address. The commission is also asking for donations of $3 per family to support the administrative costs of this program. Donations can accompany the letter. No child will be denied a letter from Santa. Checks can be made payable to Town of Norton.
