The Padanaram Christmas Festival happens again this year on December 4th.

You'll find everything from hot cider, h'orderves and holiday treats to meeting the Grinch and singing Christmas carols. There will be live music, Christmas crafts for the kids like decorating ornaments and sending letters to Santa.  And speaking of the big guy, Santa and his Elves will be arriving at the festival at 6:30pm.

Downtown Padanaram is basically turning into a Christmas winter wonderland for the entire family with each storefront at the corners of Elm and Bridge Streets hosting a different Christmas theme.

If you have kids, you don't want to miss this event...they will enjoy it as much as you will. Put it in your calendar because it's only 2 weeks from THIS Friday, December 4th with the festivities kicking off at 5 p.m. If you're wondering where you are going to park knowing the village is small with not a lot of street parking, The New Bedford Yacht Club is open for parking and there will be shuttle service from St. Mary's Church.  We'll see you there!
