Wayland Rotary Club member Renae Coley is coordinating the event this year and is pleased with the new vendors.
Wayland Rotary Club member Jean McMillan said new this year is the Christmas Tree Lights across from the Wayland American Legion at Quinlans.
“The legion donated the tree. We will have the tree lighting at Quinlans this year,” she said. “It will give us all a much easier access to the tree.”
McMillan mentioned that something very special is happening at the Wayland Historical Society this year.
“The Wayland Library will have cards for troops at the historical society,” she said. “People can fill out a message on the ornament-shaped cards to send to our troops. We want to send love to our troops, and show we support them even though they are not home.”
Santa Claus will be available at the legion at 5 p.m. for the children. The Living Nativity is put on by Cohocton Assembly of God from 5 to 7 p.m. Carolers will be singing down Main Street at 5:45 p.m. Quinlan's tree lighting will take place at 6 p.m. Wagon rides will be put on by Cory Mark Farms.
