‘Santa’s got a brand new roof’ Take it to the bank, the man in red arrives Friday
It’s that time of year already and this Friday night, the Ephrata Merchants Association will welcome Santa Claus to downtown as he discovers a new landing place.
Except for the few Christmas seasons when the train station was being renovated, the top of the immense Royer Building has served many, many years as the welcoming site for the big man in red. This year however, the large crowds gathered by the town Christmas tree in front of Ephrata National Bank caroling and enjoying cookies and cider, will only have to glance skyward to get their first glimpse this season of Kris Kringle.
This Friday, Nov. 23, Santa will arrive just past 7 p.m. on top of Ephrata National Bank at 31 East Main Street. The evening actually gets underway at 6:30 when free cookies and balloons will be available, along with other goodies handed out by roving characters such as Rudolph and Frosty. After a welcome by host Brother Weems, music by Frankie Widder begins at 6:35 p.m., before group carol singing starts at 6:45. The official lighting of the town Christmas tree, which was erected in front of ENB last Wednesday, then takes place at 6:59 p.m. sharp, just minutes before the guest of honor arrives.
After the Pioneer Fire Company carries Santa off the building and down to his waiting fans, he will then make his way across Main Street to his home for the next month — The Fun-est Toy Store Ever! He will stay till 8 p.m. that night but be back Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. He will then return Mondays through Friday from 5:30-8 p.m., and Saturdays from 10-2 through Dec. 22. Youngsters are also encouraged by the Ephrata Merchants to register at Santa’s House for prizes.
