The Town of Mattapoisett Board of Selectmen wishes to extend an invitation to all town residents to attend their 13th Annual “Holiday in the Park” and Stroll. The events take place on Saturday, December 8.
The fun filled day starts with The Mattapoisett Congregational Church Holiday Fair from
9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Continuing the Stroll, you can make you way to the Historical Society for their Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair taking place from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Once you have completed your crafts, you can head over to the Mattapoisett Library from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and listen to music or a story, have a snack, and make an ornament. On your way to Shipyard Park, you can support our Local Boy Scout Troop 53. They will be selling wreaths with free hot cocoa and coffee at the Town Hall from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
All of the fun and festivities conclude at Shipyard Park from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Santa and Mrs. Claus with be traveling through Town by Fire Truck, arriving at the Park along with Frosty

There will also be face painting and ornament making, along with the Holiday sounds of The Merry Carolers of ORR JHS who will be entertaining from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Gazebo.
Music and technical support will be provided by Rick LeBlanc.
All of this fun including the delicious food, is provided free of charge. However, the Lion’s Club will be there collecting a new unwrapped child’s gift along with canned goods.
New items this year: “Stuff the Sleigh”. The Town’s Sleigh will be located at the Park collecting: Clean, gently used coats, blankets, sleeping bags, and new winter socks. Santa’s Mail Box is also a new addition. Anyone wishing to save the postage and have Santa take their letter directly to the North Pole can place it in Santa’s Mail Box for immediate delivery.
The huge Adirondack chair will be in the Park again this year for pictures. Restrooms will be open to the public at the Library and Town Hall. Wishing a happy, healthy holiday season to all.
