Mark Your Calendars for Christmas on the Common

Christmas on the Common will be Sunday, December 4th, 2011 from 1-4 PM 

This annual holiday event is held on the Bridgewater Common (even in the snow!). Bring the family to meet Santa Claus and Mrs Claus and get your photo taken, Pony Rides, holiday music, food and hot drinks. Music provided by Oldies 103.3 and Trinity Covenant Church. The Bridgewater Masons Hall, next to the Common, will be host to our Christmas Bazaar. There will be many BBA member booths on site as well.

The BBA is proud to state that this event has consistantly grown in popularity and attendence since 1998. The BBA is thankful for all the help and cooperation they have received over the years from local businesses and members. Without them this event, along with the extremely popular AutumnFest, would not be possible.
Admission is free. Select activities at the event do cost money to participate. There is parking around the common and the event is within walking distance from the center of town.

All the net proceeds from Christmas on the Common go towards the BBA Charity Fund. Through the Charity fund, the BBA has donated over $50,000 and helped more than 200 Bridgewater residents. Through Christmas on the Common 2010, the BBA can continue to assist residents of Bridgewater, especially in these tough economic times, by paying a gas or electric bill to provide needed heat, buy toys for children, or purchase food during the holidays.

Decorations on the Common provided by the Bridgewater Lions Club.

The Mason Hall has graciously offered to let us use their hall again this year for vendors who want to set up inside, but there is very limited space. There are still a few spaces available for both BBA members and non-members to participate. Please contact Nancy Thrasher at 508-697-2731 if you would like to reserve your space. There is unlimited space on the Common and is open to anyone who would prefer to set up outside where Santa will be.
