They have built a winter wonderland set for kids to interact with this Saturday, November 17th 10am-3pm (63 N 3rd St). They will have a photographer on site to capture the moment and will send parents a high-res zip file to help you get those holiday cards taken care of!
The entire event is free and their gift to the neighborhood. If I had a kid, I would totally be here!
