Santa Claus is coming to town this Saturday.
And, hopefully, so will lots of shoppers.
Eagle's annual Christmas on Broadway event turns Dec. 3 with a full slate of activities for the whole family.
The fun will begin at 4 p.m. when Eagle will be transformed into a holiday village with holiday vendors, food booths, cookie and ornament decorating tables and more. The Dickens Carolers will be strolling and singing, and Ed Oyler will be offering horse-drawn wagon rides. Santa will be on hand for the kids and bonfires will be lit along Broadway to keep everyone warm.
Here is a sampling of some of the Christmas on Broadway plans:
• Photos with Santa from 4 to 6 p.m.
• At 4:30 p.m. the United Methodist Church Children's Theater will perform at the Health on Broadway building.
• The Castle Lodge 122 Masons and their partners at the Eagle Fire Department will be hosting an open house at the Mason's Hall and area residents are urged to drop by with a donation for the groups' annual toy drive.
• Eagle Valley Dental is sponsoring a shoe drive during Christmas on Broadway to collect shoes of all sizes (gently used or new) to be distributed to Ghana, Africa in February and Cochabamba, Bolivia in April. This is all for ABLE Missions - Assisting Better Living Everywhere - which is a charity nonprofit organization. Shoes can be donated at Eagle Valley Dental, 404 Broadway Suite B, from 4 to 6 p.m.-
• The official Eagle Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony is planned at 6 p.m.
• Following the tree lighting, the Christmas on Broadway parade will march down Broadway at 6 p.m. The parade grand marshal is former Eagle County Commissioner Johnnette Phillips.
