Crowds returned downtown on Saturday evening for family friendly fun and entertainment. The festivities started at 4:00 p.m. inside Bandstand Park where children lined up for their turn on Santa’s lap. Grown-ups and families gathered on the sidewalks along Liberty Street for a performance by Tammi Dahl Matthews before the parade, which began at 6:00 p.m.. The evening culminated in the lighting of the Christmas tree in front of the Venango County Courthouse, followed by a firework display above Fountain Park.
