“We are pleased to be able to provide the community with an event that is not only fun for adults and families alike, but also gives back to those who are in need,” said Jim Brown, President of the Poolesville Town Commission. “Year after year, Town officials and community volunteers rally to pull together an amazing ceremony that celebrates what the holiday season is all about.”
In order to ensure that the celebration will also benefit area families in need, Poolesville also urges event attendees to bring a new, unwrapped toy to support Western Upper Montgomery County Help, Inc. (WUMCO). The toys will be distributed to local children in need.

Food and refreshments will be available for purchase, including items such as grilled cheese sandwiches by Java Cruise; homemade soups from the Soup Ladies; chicken tenders, fries, and nachos from the Fry Guy, and Kettle Korn popped fresh by Annie's Addiction.
