Christmas on the Common 2012


On Sunday, December 2nd. from 1-4pm, the Bridgewater Business Association, Inc., presents the 19th Annual 2012 Christmas on the Common - the longest running annual Holiday event in Bridgewater. This event is sponsored by the Bridgewater Business Association with the generous help and support of the Bridgewater business community and the Town of Bridgewater.

Visit www.christmasonthecommon.com for up-to-date information.

Our 4th Annual Christmas Bazaar has grown so big, we will be closing half the Common down! For the first time in many years, the Bridgewater common will be closed to south-bound traffic on the west side from 11-5 (Mason's Hall side). We'll be featuring over 40 vendors for your holiday shopping in 2 locations: the Mason's Hall and a heated tent on Central Square itself.

Bring the family to meet Santa Claus and Mrs Claus and get your photo taken. Pick up your photos at CVS Pharmacy in Bridgewater after the event. Music provided by 103.3 AMP Radio and the Bridgewater Antiphonal Brass Society. Check out the B.R. High School Marching Band and the Hanson Children's Museum will be visiting with their Wild, Wild West activity. We will also be taking toy donations for Toys For Tots with the help of the Marines and Sullivan Tire in Bridgewater.

Decorations on the Common provided by the Bridgewater Lions Club.

The BBA is proud to state that this event has consistently grown in popularity and attendance since it's revitalization in 1998. We are thankful for all the help and cooperation we have received over the years from local businesses and our members. Without them, this event, along with our extremely popular Autumn-Fest, would not be possible.

Admission is free. Select activities at the event may cost money to participate. There is parking around the common and the event is within walking distance from many locations.

All the net proceeds from Christmas on the Common go towards the BBA Charity Fund. Through the Charity fund, the BBA has donated over $60,000 and helped more than 300 Bridgewater residents since 2006. Through Christmas on the Common, the BBA can continue to assist residents of Bridgewater, especially in these tough economic times, by paying a gas, oil or electric bill to provide needed heat; buy toys for children; or to purchase food during the holidays.
