WILMINGTON, MA — Below are 5 things to do in Wilmington on Sunday, December 5, 2021:
- Santa and his elves will be spreading holiday cheer through Wilmington on Sunday, December 5, 2021, starting at 8am. There will be no stops again this year, but parade organizers are collecting toys, food pantry items, and letters for the troops along our route. Residents can hand them to the elves on the second A&S Towing truck or leave them on the ground to be picked up. Residents also have the option of dropping any donations off at the Public Safety Building. The parade route can be found HERE. Follow the Parade’s Facebook page for live updates.
- We’re One Wilmington’s Festival of Trees wraps up on Sunday, December 5, 2021, from 9am to noon, inside Villanova Hall (126 Middlesex Avenue). All ticket sales, both online and in-person, will be processed via online raffle technology. A link can be found on the WOW website at https://onewilmington.org. This contact-less approach reduces multiple touch points. A bonus: guests will be able to view a detailed description of each raffle item. The format also allows for a seamless transition to a fully online event should COVID guidelines change. Tickets will not be sold at the door. In-person guests will be able to scan a QR code from their phone and assign their virtual tickets to their selected trees. Bake sale items will be available for sale on a take-out basis.
