Christmas on the Common will be Sunday, December 7th, 2014 from 1-4 PM on the Bridgewater Town Common.
For the second year in a row, the Bridgewater Common will be closed to south-bound traffic (on the west side) from 12-5. We anticipate our BIGGEST Christmas on the Common event ever!!
This annual holiday event is held directly on the Bridgewater Town Common (even in the snow!). Bring the family to meet Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and get your photo taken with Avery Photography and CVS Bridgewater, pony rides with Ponies For Parties, holiday music, food and hot drinks.
As you may know, Christmas on the Common will be hosting our annual Christmas Bazaar. We are pleased to announce the wonderful folks at the Central Square Congregational Church (next to the Common) have allowed us the use of their church for additional indoor vendor spaces. That has given the BBA the ability to host over 70 vendors for your holiday shopping this year, both outside and inside! We’ll also have vendors inside the Bridgewater Masonic Lodge and outside on the street and Common.
