WEEKEND OF FAMILY CHRISTMAS FUN IN DEERFIELD DECEMBER 7-11
Get ready for some fun with cookies, gingerbread houses, horses and Santa!
Starting on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, go for a stroll down Main Street to do the "FESTIVAL OF TREES COOKIE WALK" at area businesses from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Talk about ruining your appetite in the yummiest way possible....Mmmmmm!
On SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, several things are happening:
3:00-5:00 p.m. -- Come to the Deerfield Elementary School for the Deerfield Public Library's annual "BUILD-A-GINGERBREAD-VILLAGE". Kids and families build houses using graham crackers, icing, and lots of candies and edible goodies. We'll put them together to form a village. Depending on the flow of builders, we will light up the village every hour or half hour. Feel free to leave your houses there until 5:00 to be a part of the final village light-up and newspaper picture. Any houses not picked up will be taken back to the library for you to pick up during the tree lighting at 6:00.
3:30-5:30 p.m. -- Take a ride on a HORSE-DRAWN WAGON! Meet in the lower parking lot of the Deerfield Elementary School, and remember to dress for the weather!
5:30-6:00 p.m. -- Be a part of the Deerfield HOLIDAY PARADE. It will start at the Deerfield Elementary School's lower parking lot, then go down Oak Ridge Trail to the Deerfield Public Library on Nelson Street.
6:00 p.m. -- Join us for the annual DEERFIELD VILLAGE TREE LIGHTING at the Deerfield Public Library. We'll meet in front of the library, light the tree and sing carols to welcome the holiday season.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11 -- It's BREAKFAST WITH SANTA from 7:00 a.m. until Noon at the Deerfield Fire Station. Tell Santa what you'd like for Christmas, and then enjoy breakfast with your family and friends.
