The Camden District Council Collaborative Board will be hosting a holiday festival at the waterfront tonight.

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.


Also, in an effort to boost community pride, a holiday home decorating contest is being held throughout the city. Judging by the DCCB will be done between 6 and 10 p.m. on Dec. 19 and Dec. 20.
