Did you notice that Santa Land has a new location this year? A big round of applause goes to Brandy Collins, Becky Ottens, Toni Black, Kristin & Brandon Sneath, and Tre & Trevor Jones for doing such a great job setting up everything in Liggett Park. Be sure and join us Friday night at 6pm for some candlelight caroling, the crowning of the festival’s Snow King and Snow Queen and the official lighting of Santa Land. This event is sponsored by Biehler Tree Farm.
After the lighting of Santa Land, warm up next door at the VFW, play some Bingo, and have some hot chocolate and special Christmas snacks and treats.
The weather is looking like it’s going to be nice this weekend, so bring the family out for Breakfast with Santa sponsored by the PEO, from 8 am – 10 am. After talking with the Big Guy and eating some reindeer pancakes, you can walk off your breakfast calories at the Reindeer Run 5k and Obstacle Course which kicks off at 10 am.
We’ve got some new additions to the evening festivities this year based on our “Hillbilly Kick” theme. Downtown we have two games: Toilet Tennis and the Toilet Seat Stomp. At Mrs. Claus’ Market, we’ll be accepting entries for the Hillbilly Smackdown, a contest for hillbilly themed crafts and edible treats.
Bring the family out this weekend and enjoy all the fun things we have planned. See our ad in the Times this week for a schedule of events or check out the event’s Facebook page: Herington Annual Holiday Festival.
