Who’s ready for some fun?  We’ve got an entire day’s worth for you on Saturday, December 4th at WinterFest!  This event will sprawl across the parking lots of the Festus Public Library and the 1st UMC church and along Main Street from Mill to Walnut Streets.  Start the day at Breakfast with Santa at 1st UMC Church and then go ice skating, visit the petting zoo, or ride in horse drawn carriages down historic Main Street that will be aglow with holiday decorations.  During the day, visit the face painters, balloon twister, take advantage of the many different photo ops, and watch any of the several hour long shows.   The Concessionaire Extraordinaire and other food trucks will be on site to take care of all your snacking and food/drink needs.  Craft vendors will be there to help you make a dent in your holiday shopping!  Did we mention Santa?  What’s a holiday event without him?!? Make a plan to spend some time visiting with him at the Santa House during the afternoon.
