Santa Visits Burrough-Dover House During Nighttime Holiday Event

A new holiday tradition in our Township began a couple of years ago when historic Burrough-Dover House opened its doors on an evening in December to welcome Santa and the community for a beautiful evening of cheer. Again this year, on Friday evening, Dec. 8, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., Santa will sit before the hearth at Burrough-Dover House to welcome the young ones and their families for a Yuletide chat and a photo opportunity that will be a real Pennsauken keepsake! The historic home will be decked out with greens and tinsel and holiday regalia, while a tree adorned with ornaments stands in the parlor as if waiting for the good children of the 19th Century Dover family to rise on Christmas morning!
