Santa and Rudolph Arrive at the Fairmont
WTOP’s “Man About Town” Bob Madigan announced the much awaited arrival of Santa and Rudolph for the 8th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Fairmont Washington, D.C., on Nov. 30. The annual event, which benefits Toys for Tots, opened with a raffle drawing, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves’ Color Guard and entertainment by the Georgetown Visitation Madrigals. Santa and Rudolph descended the stairs to pose for photos in front of the Grinch-themed Gingerbread Village created by the hotel’s gifted pastry team. The tree was lit and children decorated holiday cards as everyone enjoyed complimentary hot chocolate, mulled wine and cookies.
