New England Capital is proud to be a part of Christmas In The Village South Meriden, which will be held on Saturday, December 7th from 1:00 to 4:30 PM on Main St in South Meriden. The event starts with a parade featuring Santa, Elves, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph, Little Mister and Miss Hanover School, many local community organizations and marching bands. After the parade enjoy horse drawn carriage rides, tree lighting, entertainment, baked cinnamon apples, hot chocolate, hot cider, popcorn, hot dogs, doughnuts, pictures with Santa, chestnuts roasted by the crew at New England Capital and much more.
All of this is completely free of charge! Parking is at AGC, Hanover School and Habershon Field. The festival also offers easy ways to give back to the community. Prom Angels will be collecting prom dresses. The Salvation Army will be collecting gently used coats and nonperishable food items. Luminaries will be sold for $5.00 each to benefit Roadway of Hope. It's a great way to pay tribute to loved ones.
