‘Deck City Hall’

Santa arrives in Westland Wednesday

Santa will officially arrive in Westland next week.

One of the most popular events in the city is planned for 5:30 p.m. next Wednesday, Dec. 7 in front of Westland City Hall. Santa will arrive to Deck the City Hall and help light the official city holiday tree.

The event will take place outdoor, organizers cautioned, so those attending should dress for the weather. Attendees will gather in front of city hall on Warren Road to sing Christmas Carols and welcome Santa and Mrs. Clause. This year, the event will include sing-a-longs, holiday music by saxophonist Steven Thomas, cookies and cocoa and goodie bags for the children, provided by the Westland Fire Department. Children are encouraged to write out their lists for Santa and bring them to the event to be placed in Santa's Mailbox that goes directly to the North Pole. Letters can be dropped off at Westland City Hall until Christmas Eve, organizers said.
