PITTSVILLE, WI (OnFocus) – An annual Christmas tradition will return to Pittsville this year as the “Christmas in the Center” celebration will take place this weekend.
The event, organized by community members and organizations, will have plenty of opportunities for families to have some fun ahead of Christmas time.

The first 50 registrants will receive a mug with the Hot Chocolate Hustle logo printed on it.

Other events will follow the Hot Chocolate Hustle including the Cary Go Getter 4H Soup Fundraiser, a vendor and craft sale, a visit from Santa and a free Christmas movie for kids.
