The 33rd annual children’s holiday party was held at the community center on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Organized by the Fitchburg Recreation Department, the event included an inflatable bouncy playground, a cardboard castle obstacle course, face painting, craft projects, Christmas cookie decorating, a LEGO train village, visits with Santa and a hot chocolate bar.

The children’s visits with Santa were recorded and parents could sign up to receive a copy of the video.
