Santa Claus will arrive at the square on a fire truck at 5:15 p.m., right before the tree is lit at 5:30 p.m., officials said. A reception will follow immediately after at the Watertown Savings Bank, where attendees can drink hot chocolate and cider and eat light refreshments provided by Dunkin' Donuts. Locals can also listen to holiday music and visit with Santa Claus.

Last year "was the first year we held this event and we were really pleased with the turnout,” said Bob Airasian, the commerce chamber's president, in a statement. “We’re really excited for this year’s tree lighting, and to continue with this wonderful holiday tradition.”

Parking will be available at the bank after 5 p.m.

This year's tree was donated by A. Russo and Sons, Inc., and the decorating was done in part by Home Depot, officials said.
