All ages will enjoy complimentary hot chocolate, popcorn, candy canes and balloons, as they listen to carols sung by the Marlborough High School Choir, directed by Shannon P. McNulty, and view and visit a variety of barn animals.

“This is a great community tradition and fun event for all,” said Vigeant.

The city’s Recreational Department invites all attendees to preserve the 2016 holiday memory with a free professional photograph taken against a holiday backdrop. The “photo booth” will be available in the First Congregational Church’s first floor classroom, 37 High St., from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. The festive musical portion of the event will continue at 6:45 p.m. in the church, when the Marlborough High School String Ensemble, directed by Jonathan Rosenthal, performs, followed at 7:15 p.m. by a Marlborough High School Jazz Ensemble performance, directed by Gary Piazza.
