Santa is coming to Belmont Savings Bank on Thursday, Nov. 30 during Belmont’s 27th annual “Turn on the Town” celebration. The festivities will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Leonard Street in Belmont Center.
“We are excited to kick off another holiday season with the Belmont community at this year’s Turn on the Town celebration,” said Bob Mahoney, president and CEO of Belmont Savings Bank. “As always, we are thankful for the opportunity to sponsor this special festivity bringing together families, friends and residents of Belmont. We look forward to seeing everyone there.”
On Nov. 30, Santa will arrive and light the tree at 6:20 p.m. He will then ride his sleigh to the Belmont Saving Bank main branch located at 2 Leonard Street to pose for free photos from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Inside the branch, attendees will also have the opportunity to win holiday prize stockings stuffed with goodies provided by local businesses.
Outside the branch, Bank employees will be handing out hot chocolate and offering free train rides on Moore Street. Inside the bank’s garage will be a petting zoo.
Residents are encouraged to celebrate the season of giving and bring non-perishable food items or unwrapped toys to be donated to the Belmont Food Pantry.
In anticipation of the event, the Bank has launched its fifth annual “Santa’s Helper Contest.” This contest offers kids a chance to win a ride in the horse-drawn Sleigh with Santa and Mrs. Claus from the tree lighting to the Bank’s Belmont Center branch. The winners will also be first in line to have their photo taken with Santa inside the Bank’s branch. Parents may enter their children to win on the Bank’s website.
