More than 1,500,000 twinkling lights illuminate this park and transform it into a winter wonderland. Entertainment is provided on the weekends and refreshments are also available. There is no admission, but donations are accepted. There is also a drop-off box for letters to Santa and the Jolly ole' Elf answers each and every one.
On Friday after Thanksgiving, the magic of "Santa In The Park" comes to the Historic Village. For four consecutive weekends, families enjoy a full evening of excitement visiting with Santa, making pictures, doing crafts and enjoying the beautifully lit Village Park. The children get "reindeer food" in the Grist Mill and may purchase "reindeer shoes" in the Blacksmith Shop. Shirley Gullion makes sure there is plenty of Christmas music in the Rice church, along with special groups that entertain nightly. Elvin Light's Museum is running over, doing what it does best-telling Arab's story!
