On Saturday-November 27th, 2010,
We, docents from Hearthside joined with Burrillville Historical Preservation Society and Pascoag Fire District Hose No.1 to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas holidays.
Santa drove into the center of the town of Parcoag sitting up high on a beautiful decorated fire engine. You knew he was coming as you could here the fire sirens for miles. What a spectacular entrance for the kids to see and here.
There was house-drawn hayrides, crafts and food vendors. We even got time to get in some Christmas shopping for some unique gifts. It was fun to see lots for people out with their families enjoying Christmas in their historic town.
There was so much more to see. I wish I had taken more pictures, but it is very difficult to use the camera when you step back in time.
