Despite some rain, many area residents came out to the Severna Park Chamber for the tree lighting and the festivities that followed at Park Plaza on Friday night.
During the tree lighting, Severna Park Elementary sang a number of holiday songs and local girl scout troops provided cookies. Bruster’s was also there serving up samples of ice cream.
The celebration continued in the Park Plaza shopping center as the Severna Park High jazz band and Folger McKinsey chorus performed, along with other local groups.
Santa and Mrs. Claus even made an appearance. The pair rode in on a horse-drawn carriage and posed for pictures with children who had been lined up all night.
