Towne Center Winter Carnival is next Saturday


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The Family Matters Club will host the Towne Center Winter Carnival and Tree-Lighting next Friday, December 5, starting at 5 p.m. in front of the POA/ City Hall building.

This is a free event with a visit and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with free holiday games, crafts, gingerbread house building, cookies and cocoa.

Other highlights will include free horse-drawn carriage rides, falling “snow,” carolers, entertainment by local children and a DJ playing holiday favorites. The event will include a vendor shopping area and prize drawing.

Organizer Shawna Bowen says, “We look forward to having everyone come out to the Towne Center. Spend some time enjoying the festivities and checking out the shops. Several will be open with special sales and food for the night.”
