Middletown Township hosted its Holiday Open House last week for residents to celebrate the season, and now there’s a video recapping the highlights.

The Neshaminy High School Choir joined in as one of four musical groups to fill the Middletown Municipal Building with holiday cheer. The NHS Orchestra, the Cairn University Flute Choir, and local band ‘Nothing But a Nightmare’ also performed holiday tunes.

‘Nothing But A Nightmare’ entertains the crowd while
people wait their turn for the horse drawn carriage ride.

Those who attended ate special treats, made arts and crafts, and went on horse-drawn wagon rides. To top it off Santa himself arrived on a local fire engine to take pictures with the children waiting in anticipation. 

“The hot chocolate and food/snacks are provided annually by Girls Scout Troop 2359,” Parks & Rec Director Paul Kopera said. “We have the Troop in each year and they use it as a fundraiser.

Maybe most heartwarming of all, each person brought a food item or pair of mittens as a donation to those in need. Boy Scout Troop 316 helped collect the food donations people brought in.

Neshaminy High School Senior Andrew Niranonta, class of 2019, recorded and edited the video. Niranonta has done four videos in total for the township as an act of good will, according to Kopera.
