Please join them for this popular and festive event which includes live musical entertainment, a visit by Santa Claus, and children sing-alongs.  Desserts and refreshments will be served. This year we have invited back the Balloon Magic of Yarrow, who will entertain children with his amazing balloon magic – twisting them into various shapes and given to children in attendance.

Also included again this year is a free children’s raffle with many exciting surprises for the kids.  All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
