Celebrate the Season held in Town Hall for final time

Annual free event, Dec. 6, shifts to new Community Center in 2020

For the last year of holding Celebrate the Season at Farragut Town Hall, Town of Farragut invites families in the community to the 26th annual free event taking place from 4:30 to 7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 6.

This year’s “Celebrate” being on a Friday is unlike other years when the event was held on a Thursday.

“We thought it would be better attended since it won’t be a school night,” said Wendy Smith, Town Public Relations and Marketing coordinator.

With Town Hall adorned with Christmas finery, many favorite activities return for children and their families: crafts, refreshments, cookie decorating, museum tours, entertainment by Farragut Middle School Choir, Farragut High School Madrigal Singers and Bearden United Methodist Children’s Bell Choir — and, of course, meeting and having photos with Santa from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Final photo numbers, a must, will be given at 6 p.m., Smith said.

As a reminder to parents, “Due to the number of participants, this is a photo opportunity rather than a time to share wish lists,” Smith said.

Farragut Town Hall is located at 11408 Municipal Center Drive, across from Farragut Branch, U.S. Post Office.

Next year, the Town anticipates holding Celebrate the Season in the new Community Center along Jamestowne Boulevard, as the center is expected to open in January 2020, Smith said.
