KCP's Christmas in Kutztown presents:

"I'll Be Home For Christmas"

December 2nd, 2017

Join us in our start of the season celebration with Christmas in Kutztown! This event will include activities ongoing throughout the day both in our community and on KU's campus. The day starts off on campus at 9:30am with Breakfast with Santa and runs throughout the day ending with the town tree- lighting ceremony beginning at at 5:30pm. This year, we are honoring veterans and active servicemen and women. During the event, our honored guests will be given a special tribute on the main stage, along with special deals offered by local businesses. KCP will also be hosting a stand that will accept donations for service people over seas. We will be accepting toiletries, cards, candy, scarves, hats, gloves, socks, and money to assist with shipping. We will accept other donation items as long as they are appropriate. Help us make this Christmas event our best yet with family fun for everyone!
