Camden community group to host holiday festival at the waterfront tonight

It’s not quite a winter wonderland yet (hello, 60-degree weather!) but the Camden District Council Collaborative Board is hosting its second annual Holiday Enchantment Festival from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight at Johnson Park, corner of 2nd and Cooper streets on the Camden Waterfront.

 

The festival will include a holiday concert and a park lighting ceremony, as well as an appearance from Santa.

 

The DCCB,  a group of volunteers that works to address public-safety and quality-of-life issues, is asking people to bring a non-perishable item to the festival for the 2012 food drive benefitting the Food Bank of South Jersey.
