The City of Watertown and its sponsors presents The Whoville Jubilee and Official Watertown Tree Lighting!
Come visit the grounds of the Commander’s Mansion for a jolly night of holiday fun on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.! This will be an indoor and outdoor walking experience. Your Whoville Passport will make sure you don’t miss a moment of merrymaking!
This event will be held snow or shine.
Parking: Free garage parking located in the Arsenal on the Charles office complex (across from Branch Line/Panera). Handicap parking will be made available closer to the Whoville entrance; be on the lookout for Santa’s security! Please note there will be NO parking at the Commander’s Mansion.
Donations: The Watertown Veteran’s Office/Pvt. Shutt Detachment/VFW Post 1105 will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots/WPD Whooley Foundation. For each toy donated, you will receive a raffle ticket to be entered to become the Cheermeister Family and light the Official Watertown Tree! If you would like to make a monetary donation, checks may be made payable to The Whooley Foundation – we will not be able to accept cash.
Free Photos with Santa: This experience is completely full.
Makers Market: Inside the Mansion you will find local Watertown artisans selling handmade gifts!
