Margate Small Business Saturday 2018
November 24th is Margate Small Business Saturday 2018. On this day, we support small businesses in the Margate area. Santa arrives on a City firetruck to visit with all the good little boys and girls. For our hearing impaired youngsters, this Santa uses ASL fluently, too. He doesn’t want to leave anyone out of the holiday cheer. Anchor Arts offers free arts and crafts activities for the kids. When your children build up an appetite, take them to Bocca’s for a free slice of pizza and soda.
Margate Fill the Cruiser Toy Drive 2018
After his arrival in town, Santa lands at the City ballfields. The Phillie Phanatic joins Santa for pictures with fans. While you’re there, bring new unwrapped toys for children of all ages for the Fill the Cruiser event. From 6 pm to 9 pm, our first responders will be on hand to accept these donations for local girls and boys in need. A local DJ plays music in the background while guests ride trains, look at sparkling light displays, get their faces painted, and much more. And you definitely won’t want to miss the Menorah raising or Christmas tree lighting later in the evening!
