From elves and Santa to Christmas stories and a candy room, children and adults enjoyed ‘Tis the Season holiday celebration on Dec. 9 at Potomac Place Neighborhood Center.
Corvias Military Living sponsored the annual event.
About 500 residents attended the two-hour celebration, which also featured entertainment by a chipmunk and snowman, and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
“It was a huge success,” said Darla Humbles, resident relations manager for Corvias and event organizer. “We were very surprised at the turnout.”
Children enjoyed decorating cupcakes, games, and selecting favorite treats from a candy room.
Refreshments included pizza, sandwiches, chips and drinks.
‘Tis the Season has been a Fort Meade tradition for the past decade.
“We wanted to give residents that experience this year,” Humbles said.
