Elves took over Kutztown on Sunday followed by the arrival of Santa on a brightly lit fire truck at Borough Hall for Kutztown’s official tree lighting ceremony.
For this year’s Main Street Christmas event in Kutztown, children were asked to help Santa make sure his elves are where they are supposed to be by participating in the Elf on the shelf scavenger hunt. Santa had 12 elves hiding throughout stores in Kutztown.
Other events included Breakfast with Santa at the Kutztown Fire Company, the 2012 Holiday House tours that benefit the community library, children’s Holiday Book readings throughout the day at Firefly Bookstore, pictures with Santa at Pop’s Malt shop and the Mayor’s Pick, a free showing of the movie Elf at the Strand theatre. Businesses also had extended hours to help early shoppers get a jump start on their list.
The day concluded with Community Caroling with Trinity Lutheran Church at 4 p.m., followed by the 5p.m. Tree Lighting with Santa.
