Santa will arrive at 6pm to light the Gettysburg Christmas Tree. Free hot chocolate will be offered from 5:30 pm – 5:55 pm while you wait for Santa to arrive. Traffic will be stopped during this time so you can have your picture taken with the tree. After lighting the tree, Santa will then arrive at his Shanty, located on Lincoln Square, to greet all the children, 4-footed included. Santa will be at the Shanty until 8 pm.
