Marlborough – Light snow showers Dec. 6 intermittently decorated Marlborough’s Union Common during the city’s annual Home for the Holidays.
Festivities began with hot chocolate and popcorn distributed by track teammates from Advanced Math and Science Academy. Meanwhile, the Marlborough High School (MHS) Chorus sang seasonal songs under the direction of Shannon McNulty.
Santa Claus arrived via the city’s Ladder 1 firetruck with a bagful of candy canes for kids and then heard their gift wishes. The park became brighter and more colorful when Mayor Arthur Vigeant lit the holiday tree.
MHS students continued providing musical entertainment inside the nearby First Church in Marlborough with performances by the String Ensemble directed by Angie Crockwell and the Jazz Ensemble directed by James Verdone.
Home for the Holidays was sponsored by The Vin Bin.
