Aurora Highlands will get a little brighter tonight, during the annual “Miracle on 23rd Street” holiday celebration.

Linden Resources, Inc. is hosting the holiday festivies including a Christmas tree lighting and holiday music. Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive on an Arlington fire truck.

The event is open to the public and begins at 6:30 p.m. in front of the Linden Resources building (750 S. 23rd Street). In addition to the outdoor activities, guests are invited to take part in multi-cultural children’s activities inside the building.

Linden Resources employs and provides job placement for adults with intellectual, physical and mental health disabilities.

    Is this the same event when the fire truck drives slowly along every street through the neighborhood? I wish it would stop – it’s creepy and it scares the dog.

    • Huh?

      Nice to meet you Mr. Scrooge.

        that comment doesn’t make him a scrooge. Its perfectly ok to dislike something…we don’t have to like everything about Xmas.

          For all we know, it could be the dog posting this.

            Ha, nice one. Not sure how the dog can post this when he’s tied up to a pole outside in the cold and I’m inside this sweet fro-yo place.

            dog postings are done w/o spaces b/c no thumbs….

    I think this is the same Santa/Firetruck deal that goes throughout all of Arlington. We have alot of little kids in our neighborhood adn they LOVE it. I think its cool, but I guess everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.

    “Linden Resources employs and provides job placement for adults with intellectual, physical and mental health disabilities.”. am wondering how one differentiates between mental and intellectual disabilities. and yes I did read the Linden link. just curious.

    Sunflower: Try reading the DSM.
