With a flip of the switch, the holiday lights were turned on at Wrentham Common last night as a packed crowd came together to enjoy the lights and classic Christmas music.
With Selectmen Chair Joe Botaish acting as the master of ceremonies, the evening featured music, singing, and an appearance from Santa Clause himself.
The lights were set up by the Wrentham Department of Public Works and the Sohoanno Garden Club were responsible with decorating the gazebo.
State Senator Richard Ross kicked things off with a reading of the Night Before Christmas, followed by a performance from the King Philip Concert Band.
Next, Selectman Charles Kennedy joined the Girl Scouts in signing Frosty the Snowman and Jingle Bells.
With everyone ready to see the lights turned on, Selectwoman Gail Pratt led the countdown as DPW Superintendent Michael Lavin turned on the power for the lights.
As the KP Concert Band played again after the lights were turned on, Santa Clause arrived on top of a Wrentham fire truck to wrap up the night. St. Nick then made his way to the gazebo to greet the children in attendance.
