Utica City Hall Thursday, December 12, 2019 for Christmas @ City Hall.
This year Christmas @ City Hall will be bigger than ever. Santa arrives at City Hall on a tractor driven wagon, escorted by the UPD & Fire Department. Santa and the Mayor then start out the evening with Christmas Carols, and the lighting of the City Hall Christmas.
This event is free to the public and is attended annually by hundreds who come from throughout central New York. Christmas @ City Hall is an event that captures the traditions and atmosphere of an old fashioned Christmas featuring live entertainment visits with Santa Claus, cookies, and hot chocolate at City Hall. Christmas City Hall continues with an evening of entertainment, refreshments, children’s activities, and of course visits with Santa. Every child who visits Santa will receive a small gift.
Volunteer elves will be there to help the children make special ornaments for their own Christmas tree and write letters to Santa. While the children are waiting they can enjoy a visit with the Utica Zoo Mobile. Families should also take a little time to enjoy an old fashion wagon ride around City Hall courtesy of Clinton Tractor.
This is a totally FREE event for families made possible by donations from businesses and individuals. The night is filled with FREE entertainment, FREE refreshments and the joy of Christmas.
In the spirit of Christmas giving Mayor Palmieri asks everyone to consider bringing a donation of an unwrapped present for ‘Toys for Kids’.
