Saturday, Dec. 5
With the local economy in the dumps, word has come from the North Pole that Santa considers not buying local naughty behavior.

Along with great local gift ideas, the event will have hot chocolate stations, free beanies and scarves, carolers spreading the joy of the season and much more.
