Festival fun is scheduled from 3 to 8 p.m. and will include live entertainment, arts and crafts and cupcake decorating. Santa will return to light the 50-foot silhouette holiday tree at 6 p.m. then stay for photos with good boys and girls. The evening wraps up with a free outdoor screening of “The Grinch.”

The fun is back Sunday, December 2, from 2 to 6 p.m. Live entertainment, holiday activities and Santa will continue to bring the spirit of the season. A new special attraction this year will be a giant synthetic snow hill slide for kids and adults.
