2013 Christmas on the Common


On Sunday, December 1st. from 1-4 pm, the Bridgewater Business Association, Inc., presents the 20th Annual 2013 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.

For the second year in a row, the Bridgewater Common will be closed to south-bound traffic (on the west side) from 12-5. We anticipate our BIGGEST Christmas on the Common event ever!!

This annual holiday event is held directly on the Bridgewater Town Common (even in the snow!). Bring the family to meet Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and get your photo taken with Avery Photography and CVS Bridgewater, pony rides with Ponies For Parties, holiday music, food and hot drinks.

Christmas on the Common will be hosting a Christmas Bazaar with over 70 vendors for your holiday shopping outside on the Common, and inside in the Bridgewater Masonic Lodge and at the Central Square Congregational Church, both next to the Common.

We'll also be taking Toys For Tots donations during the entire event as well as winter clothes donations courtesy of Sullivan Tire in Bridgewater.

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 Assistance Fund. Through this Assistance Fund, the BBA has donated over $75,000 and helped more than 300 Bridgewater residents since 2005. 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.
