First Lights in Arlington Heights Was a Big Hit!

On an unusually balmy Saturday evening in early December, ACMi’s Studio A was the site for First Lights festivities that included:             to open the holiday season! Scores of Arlington’s youngest residents showed up to hear Santa read “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and they brought their parents along to join in the fun! A children’s chorus from the nearby Park Ave Congregational Church led the crowd through a series of beloved holiday chestnuts, cookies and hot cider were provided by host ACMi, and winners of a raffle sponsored by participating local businesses were selected.
