White Oak will kick off the holiday season with concerts and a tree-lighting ceremony this Saturday.

The event, to be held at Rainbow Volunteer Fire Co.'s hall on Route 48, will includes visits with Santa Claus and a pancake brunch, a spokeswoman said.

The "Season of Lights" celebration includes a pancake and sausage brunch at the fire hall, 2916 Jacks Run Road, from 2 to 4:45 p.m. Ages 16 and under may attend for free, while the cost is $2 for ages 17 and over.

Kids may have their photos taken with Santa, and "goody bags" will be available for children while supplies last.

At 3 p.m., the Mon Yough Chorale will perform holiday favorites, followed by the McKeesport Area High School String Orchestra at 5 p.m.

The borough's holiday tree will be lit at 6 p.m. The winner of the borough's coloring contest will flip the switch to turn on the lights.

Refreshments and door prizes also will be available during the event.

For more information, visit the borough's website or the Rainbow Volunteer Fire Co. Facebook page.
