The Holiday Season officially starts when Santa comes to town... and according to his flight plan, St. Nick's sleigh touches down in Media on Sunday, November 26th!

We will have barely digested our Thanksgiving dinner, when what to our wondering eyes should appear?  But Santa, his sleigh and some glittering reindeer! 

So after a fun Thanksgiving dinner, add an extra gift to your Black Friday Shopping list...  Purchase a toy (or canned food items) for a needy family, because that's the only price of admission for Sunday's huge Holiday Block Party & Parade!

Drop off the toys and canned goods at Veteran's Square. The toys are for the Toys For Tots drive - and the canned goods will go to the local Food Bank. 

Three years ago Kenny's Flowers in Media,  created what has become a giant, town-sized FREE Welcome Santa Party...
   
It kicks off with a huge Parade & Fun Run/Walk that draws thousands each year.  Shops and stores open up extra hours, restaurants offer food specials all day, and local businesses sponsor activities and funds for building floats, and a dedicated committee of volunteers do the decorating, registration, and marketing.

The parade features dozens of musical and dance acts,plus magical floats (decorated by Kenny's Flowers and volunteers). Everyone is welcome to walk in the parade...


Dress up in your favorite holiday gear - as Santa, an elf, the Grinch, a reindeer or you can even light yourself up as a Christmas Tree! 

The Block Party is 2:30-5pm on State Street at Veteran's Square. There will be treats, giveaways, and live music by Jimmy Shoe & the Shine.

The Fun Run & Walk kicks off at 4:30pm 
No fee - just bring a toy or nonperishable food item.
To register go to: Bryn Mawr Running Co. Website 

The Santa Parade starts at 5pm sharp!
