Local churches will be hosting many of the booths, as well as town staff and crews, the Polk County Public Library storytellers, and committee members. Enjoy Christmas music and carolers, hot chocolate, mulled cider and candy canes, fresh popcorn, cookie decorating station, merchant gifts, Christmas tree lighting, listen to Christmas stories, visit the live Nativity scene, and have your picture taken with Santa Claus in the Gazebo. Santa’s Mail Box is already up at the corner of the park, ready for letters!
