December pre-holiday greetings

Can you believe we are well in to December? Where is the time going?

With the holiday season, there is plenty to do around town. You will find plenty of free concerts at Bella Terra on the weekends. At 7pm on these December weekends, you can also enjoy real snow. They have a 10 minute live Magic of Snow (check the calendar to double check the dates). Santa pops in during the day (usually 12-4pm) on Saturdays for photo ops.

Down at The Strand you can bring your pet this Saturday for photos with Santa (noon to 3). The Strand also brought back the skating rink for all to enjoy. Skate on real ice!

If you miss Santa at either of those locations, he is also showing up at Old World on Sunday (again noon, but til 7pm). You will find him at the Sandyle Kids & Baby Boutique. While there catch the Dachshund Races at the Festival Hall, always a fun time watching those dogs race that track!!

Some of the merchants in Old World (including Sandyle) can be found on the city's discount program: . Check out all the ways you can save around town. Keep your holiday shopping dollars local. One of the new merchants to sign up is Sparrow's Nest Consignment at 19642 Gothard. They are having their holiday open house this Saturday offering 20% off any one item. Stop in and check out all the great stuff they have.
