Attend a play, tree lighting at Rockville Hometown Holidays

Looking for some Christmas spirit? Visit the Rockville Hometown Holidays, Friday through Sunday.

The event will offer up carols, Santa, shopping, arts and crafts, a live Nativity re-enactment and a Christmas Home Tour.

The historic 100-year-old Ritz Theatre, downtown, will be showing a Christmas movie at 7 p.m. Friday and at 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday.

On Sunday, The Parke Players will offer their annual Christmas Play, this year presenting “The Nutcracker,” at 2 and 5 p.m. For more information on the production, call 765-569-0628.

The courthouse square on U.S. 36 will be the site for the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree at 6 p.m. Saturday.

There will be carolers, Santa will be on site, and Mrs. Claus and the elves will be on hand in the Hot Chocolate House from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Santa will be on hand from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Also on Saturday, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Santa and his elves will be decorating cookies and coloring Christmas pictures at the Rockville Public Library.
