The Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce invites the public to participate in the Lewiston Christmas Walk and Tour of Homes on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 7 and 8. This kicks off the holiday season with Santa flying into Lewiston and landing in Academy Park between 11:15 and 11:30 a.m. Santa will then ride down Center Street to the International Peace Garden. After visiting Santa, families can head on down to see the animals at the petting zoo in Hennepin Park.
Chamber President Jennifer Pauly said, “No other town has Santa come into the festival on a helicopter. It’s always a cool thing; it never gets old. It’s cool and unique to our community.”
Adults can enjoy the beautifully decorated stores on Center Street and embrace the unique charm of the Village of Lewiston.
Also that weekend, the Tour of Homes is the Historical Association of Lewiston’s signature fundraiser. Funds are used to preserve and promote Lewiston’s rich heritage.
Tickets are $25 and are available on the HAL website: http://www.lewistonhometour.com/.
