Christmas open house

Jackson and Jenna Ambrose, children of Joey and Amanda Ambrose, pay a visit to Santa Claus during Downtown South Boston’s 32nd annual Christmas open house last year. Santa will return to town Sunday afternoon to hear the wishes of good little boys and girls.

The public is invited to stroll historic downtown South Boston during its 33rd annual Christmas open house from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday for holiday shopping.

Shoppers can enjoy the holiday lights and decorations while listening to Christmas music.

Downtown stores will open their doors for holiday shopping, and Santa will be at The Busy Bean from 1 to 4 p.m.

Santa pictures will be printed on site, and shoppers are welcome to bring their own camera and visit with Santa.

Also they can register to win a $100 downtown gift certificate.

The Christmas open house is sponsored by Destination Downtown South Boston.
