The Borough of Boyertown saw its annual holiday celebration on Saturday, Dec. 2. Building A Better Boyertown held its annual Chillin’ on Main event featuring the arrival of Santa via the Colebrookdale Railroad.

In addition to Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Grinch, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, and other holiday characters joined in on the holiday celebration featuring a Santa’s workshop, games, crafts, and activities. Boy Scout Troop 533 of New Bernville assembled and sold wreaths.
