 TENTH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS IN HERSHEY CELEBRATION ANNOUNCED;
 THE HOTEL HERSHEY AND THE HERSHEY LODGE OFFER SPECIAL PACKAGES
 HERSHEY, Pa., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tenth Annual Christmas in Hershey winter holiday festival begins Nov. 13 with an exciting calendar of events and special holiday packages scheduled for the entire family.
 Hersheypark Christmas Candylane, with its outdoor display of more than 300,000 lights, serves as the focal point of the town-wide celebration open to the public through Dec. 31. Admission is free to Christmas Candylane; however, the rides are available on a pay-as-you- ride basis.
 Christmas Candylane is open daily Wednesdays through Sundays. Hours of operation vary. Christmas Candylane is closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day but is open the Mondays and Tuesdays preceding and proceeding Christmas.
 Visitors can ride one of the nation's oldest operating carousels and experience several children's rides when the theme park is magically transformed into a holiday shopping village and winter wonderland. Entertainment such as strolling carolers and brass ensembles provide the sounds of the season.
 Hershey's Chocolate World visitors center has "big" things planned for this year's holiday season. It will create the world's largest Christmas stocking to be recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. The stocking, towering 18 feet high and 7-1/2 feet wide, will be filled with toys and many other "sweet" gifts, which will be donated to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. From Nov. 13 through Dec. 13, visitors who come to Hershey's Chocolate World and bring a new toy to add to the stocking will receive a free holiday-wrapped Hershey's milk chocolate bar. In addition to the stocking, Chocolate World will feature its annual animated elves and outdoor light display.
 Dinners with Dickens at Pippin's Food & Spirits in Christmas Candylane and traditional Olde English Dinners at The Hotel Hershey recall Christmases of days gone by. A live Nativity scene at The Hershey Lodge celebrates the birth of Christ.
 The world-renowned chefs of The Hotel Hershey provide sumptuous dishes to tempt every palate. Visitors may enjoy the 14th annual Festival of Food and Light, Pennsylvania Heritage holiday feasts and International Christmas Dinners. A formal tea with classical music ends a perfect winter afternoon in Hershey.
 Roving carolers and dinner serenades, many children's events featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Seventh Annual Teddy Bear Jubilee at The Hotel Hershey, entertainment at Hersheypark Arena, horse-drawn carriage rides at Christmas Candylane and The Hotel Hershey, and an arts and crafts show round out the calendar of events.
