In a matter of days, the “Santa House” in downtown Barrington will be buzzing with activity, when St. Nick returns and makes his grand entrance during the annual lighting of the community Christmas tree.
The Village of Barrington goes all out for this yearly tree lighting tradition, with carriage rides, strolling carolers and Santa’s arrival on a firetruck before he heads to his perch in his little house stationed right in the heart of town.
Once he gets settled, the doors of that Santa Station will swing open for him to visit with a long line of local kids this Saturday, December 1st.
The Village of Barrington, merchants and restaurants throughout town have a special day planned for this Saturday leading up to the tree lighting and Santa’s arrival. And they’re making it easy for you to hit as many shops as possible with trolley service available between 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. The trolley will make a continuous hourly circuit with stops every 15 minutes at the following locations: Village Center – 100 S Cook Street, The Ice House Mall, Shops on Lageschulte Street and the Foundry Shopping Center on Northwest Highway.
Here’s what’s happening, when and where……

After 54 days riding his bike 2,000 miles down the Pacific coast to raise $1 Million for ALS, Cancer and Hospice, Bob Lee returned to Barrington this week. His family and friends welcomed him home on Sunday night and there’s a big Spin-a-Thon and community party planned for Bob this Saturday.
Bob’s welcome home party actually starts with a Spin-a-thon for anyone interested in hopping on a bike at Good Shepherd Health and Fitness Center. There are three $25 classes being offered, in Bob’s honor, between 1 and 4 p.m. All funds raised will be tripled thanks to matching donations and will go toward reaching Bob’s $1 Million goal.
After the classes, the entire community is welcome to a reception with wine, hors d’oeuvres and refreshments from 4 to 5:30 p.m. this Saturday, also at Good Shepherd Health & Fitness Center. Bob says it’s an opportunity for him to say thanks to all those have supported his ride in so many ways. And this event is just one of many upcoming things to do that made this week’s “10 on Tuesday” list of Barrington-area events taking place in the coming weeks……
