This event will serve as an “open house” for folks to come up on the Hilltop for some holiday fun, shop local at our businesses, and check out some projects that they have been working on.

Santa will be joining in the fun at 212 Brownsville along with entertainment, a craft market at 127 Brownsville, kids’ activities and more. The Mt. Oliver Fire Department will hold a flea market as well.

The celebration will be from 1-4 p.m. in the 100-200 blocks of Brownsville Road in Mt. Oliver. The 100-200 blocks will be closed so people can get safely across the streets to each business.

Mt. Oliver Borough and utility companies recently completed a significant investment in new sidewalks and handicap accessible ramps throughout the 100 and 200 blocks of Brownsville Road, in the heart of the business district.
