CHRISTMAS TIME IN CHARLESTOWN
This past Sunday, December 6, it was looking a lot like Christmas in Charlestown’s Thompson Square with unseasonably mild weather. Around 4pm, the environment was very Ho! Ho! Ho! Kids were all over the place in anticipation of Santa’s arrival.
Seemed like the kids and parents were also enjoying the annual Toyland Park at Austin Street at the square. As Santa came in view on Austin Street, the kids started cheering and then one by one each child met Santa sitting in his large comfy chair as parents started snapping away with cameras and phones.
The event was part of Mayor Walsh’s Enchanted Trolley Tour, riding across the city’s neighborhoods lighting Christmas trees.
This year following the festivities, the Warren Tavern held its very successful Toys for Tots drive. Townies always comes through. Thank you Charlestown, Thank you to the US Marines Corps too.
