Santa Claus is coming to town!

Looking like a scene from a Currier and Ives print, Christmas season officially begins in Ligonier this weekend. Volunteers spent the last two weeks hanging lights on the trees and bows on the Bandstand in preparation for “Santa's Arrival and Diamond Lighting” event.
Santa will arrive at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow on a horse-driven sleigh. He will be led to town by the Ligonier Valley High School marching band under the direction of Bethann Tricket, local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, the Idlewild Trolley and Miss Ligonier's Court.
WJAC-TV news anchor Bill Brown, Ligonier Mayor Ormond “Butch” Bellas, Miss Ligonier, Emily Rose Long; First Runner-Up, Madeleine Wolff and Second Runner-Up, Allison Fox will be on hand to assist Santa as he flips the switch on the Town Hall steps to officially turn on the lights around the Diamond. Santa will greet children in the Town Hall community room following the lighting. Santa's mailbox will be placed near Town Hall for letters from the children in the Ligonier Valley.
