“The city of Concord invites you to the annual Lighting of Concord. Gather around crackling fireboxes with friends old and new, enjoy pony rides for the children or eat tasty food served along Main Street,” said Concord deputy clerk Anita Neath. “Sing along with live entertainment! Santa arrives early this year with visits by appointment only beginning at noon and ending at 8:30 p.m. You only need one slot per child/family. Santa’s photographer will be on site to capture that special moment with your child! To be courteous to all Santa’s visitors and keep things flowing, pictures with Santa will be limited to the professional photographers’ options of a digital photo (email) for $15 or a maximum of two photos taken by our photographer with your device.”
