Crow River Christmas

The first weekend of the first-ever Crow River Christmas seemed to be a hit, at least from this observer's point of view. The second weekend won't have quite as many events, but hopefully it will be as well attended.

On December 4, the first Saturday of the Crow River Christmas included a variety of activities suitable for all ages. There was a Medallion Hunt, pancake breakfast, Cookie Walk, Chili Contest, and a ceremony to Light Up the Park. Starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m., there was something happening nearly every moment of the day.

This weekend on December 11, the festivities will be a little bit more subdued. There will be a Girl Scout Holiday Craft & Bake Sale with a varying admission policy starting at 9:00 a.m., but which will be officially open to the public at 10:30 until noon. Pictures with Santa will beheld from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Rockford Fire Station (bring a new toy, they'll be holding a toy drive to benefit local families!). And my personal favorite, the Ames Florida Stork House will be open for tours and decorated for Christmas in a turn-of-the-century style with offerings of hot chocolate and cookies.

The Stork House will also hold its traditional, low-key Victorian-Style Christmas Tea on Sunday, December 12, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
