    Lock 60 at Schuylkill Canal Park, 400 Towpath Rd., Mont Clare, Pa, 610-917-8030

    Step back in time to a Dickens’ holiday scene, as you enter the beautifully decorated Locktender’s house and sing along with the joyful music played by local musician(s). Partake in holiday treats and hot cider and join in with the Schuylkill Canal Association as we toast our friends with best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season. And for the little ones, Santa Claus will be accepting visitors between 6:30pm & 7:30pm.
    All are welcome. A donation of $1 or more will be gladly accepted. Ample parking is available at Lock 60.

    NOTE: The event is cancelled only if there is a steady downpour of rain or snow. The magnificent light display is even more mystical if there is a slight drizzle, misty fog or a few inches of snow, truly creating a beautiful holiday scene.

    For additional information, call (610) 917-0021 or visit www.schuylkillcanal.org.
