I took the time to listen to all of the wonderful ideas. I knew we had a perfect location to hold such an event and I also knew I could count on the citizens of this community to come together to make it happen. We have representation from nearly 20 organizations, civic clubs, churches, and community volunteers on our planning committee.”

Among the events, Santa will be making an appearance. Local businesses will run on extended hours and food trucks will provide food, drink, and treats.
