I would invite residents from across the 13th and the entire city to come participate in the family-friendly fun.”

The Songs of the Season event will take place on Saturday, December 11 also at 6th and Norwich. Caroling will begin at 4 p.m. and conclude with illuminating the Winter Wonderland lights display at dusk.
