The Radnor Fire House on South Wayne Avenue will host face-painting and ornamental decorating. The evening will culminate with the lighting of the Christmas Tree at Wayne Train Station.

The festivities continue on Saturday morning, Dec. 6, with a Santa Parade led by the Radnor High School Marching Band and Cheerleaders and the Valley Forge Military Academy Field Music Group.

Santa will make his way down Lancaster Avenue on a fire truck to the veranda of the Wayne Hotel, where children are invited to sit with him and enjoy freshly baked cookies and hot chocolate, compliments of Paramour.

The holiday season is also a time to give back. During Santa’s stay, the Wayne Hotel will be collecting gifts to benefit Toys for Tots. 

Our Best of the Main Line Elimination Ballot is open through February 22!
