The holiday season is in full swing! Celebrate with your family in downtown Chelsea from Nov. 30-Dec. 2, 2012.

Kick off the holiday season by eating breakfast with the jolly man in red, listening to some charming Christmas carols, watching a light parade, crafting with the family and more at the Hometown Holiday event in Chelsea, Nov. 30-Dec. 2.

Hometown Holiday, a free annual event that takes place in Chelsea's downtown and southtown areas, features three days of holiday activities in the first weekend of December.

Wake up Saturday and take the kids to a free 8:30 a.m. breakfast with Santa at the Comfort Inn & Village Conference Center. Parents, you'll enjoy the All The Trimmings Artisan's Holiday Show with woodcarvings, cross-stitch, stained glass and more.

Also on Saturday, there is a Gingerbread House Workshop at 11 a.m. and noon, the annual Chelsea Light Parade at 6 p.m., and the community sing-a-long at 7 p.m. – full of carols and a chance to warm up with refreshments.

On Sunday, the last day of the event, don't miss the Giant Holiday Stocking Giveaway at 11:30 a.m., where you'll have a chance to win a 6-foot-tall stocking! End the event with the Chelsea Chamber Players Holiday Concert at 3 and 7 p.m.
