Local families are invited to join Santa and his friends from the North Pole for an evening of music, dancing and Christmas magic!
LIBERTY, N.Y. (December 8, 2015) â€“ The Town of Liberty will host the Santa Express on Saturday, December 12. The Santa Express is a 50 feet long musical scene that sparkles with twinkling lights. North Main Street will be closed to traffic for festivities beginning at 6 p.m. Families are welcomed to meet Santa Claus and his friends from the North Pole, sing, dance, and enjoy hot cocoa, coffee and cookies.
Prior to Santaâ€™s arrival, singer Gwen Nieves will entertain the crowd with Christmas carols on the deck of Charlieâ€™s Pizza. Saturdayâ€™s free event is a result of many hands, including the Greater Liberty Chamber of Commerce, ShopRite in Liberty, the Liberty Police Department, and Liberty Fitness Club.
â€œWe are very excited to be a part of this event,â€ said Liberty Fitness Center owner Cindy Faracasse. â€œThere is nothing more important than our families and children, and the Santa Express is bringing back the true meaning of Christmas.â€
â€œThe Town of Liberty is thrilled to be a stop on the Santa Express 100 plus mile journey,â€ said Liberty Town Supervisor Charlie Barbuti. â€œThis has become one of the most highly anticipated events of the year.â€
The mission of the Santa Express is to spread the magic of the season with a message of love, hope and peace for all. Created in Eldred in 2005, the Santa Express has grown into a wonderful Christmas tradition and visits 11 towns in Sullivan and Orange Counties over 5 magical nights.
